The Infernal Device

Steampunk (as well as Fantasy, Horror and Gothic, among others) artist, illustrator and sculptor Myke Amend (who does amazing work, by the way) is working with Steve Brook (maker of incredible steampunk guitars) and Todd Cahill (Steam Machine Sculptor) to build an incredible machine for an art competition in September.

A sketch of what the Device might look like
The Infernal Device will be a large piece of steampunk art powered completely by alternative energy, including wind and solar power.  They are primarily using re-purposed materials (90% of the device will be made of re-purposed parts), primarily in the style of the late 1800's. They are searching high and low through junkyards, farm fields, old garages .... for suitable items. They are gladly taking donations of anything you might find that you'd love to see used but won't be using yourself but they are also seeking help in purchasing some of the items they want.

This is where you come in. Check out their kickstarter page for more information on the device and how to contribute.  They have great rewards for everyone who contributes, even if you only give $1!  So stop on over before 7pm this Monday, May 23rd, and help them to make this project a reality!
