Tomfoolery abounds! Spectacular moments of wonder with Doctor Monocle.
I started this blog as a place to keep reference material and artwork that influenced me/inspired me while I wrote the first Dr. Monocle book. It’s mainly steampunk stuff, but also includes dieselpunk (like steampunk for WWI and WWII), Victorian era stuff, weird west genre stuff, and, every once in a while, a bit of sci-fi or fantasy work.www.doctormonocle.com

Corpus Somnium is a treasure chest full of bits and pieces of collected material that we gather together intuitively without any real purpose in mind. These individual jewels can be virtually anything that sparks our curiosity: images, texts, videos… all of them tiny points of light in this Great Web of Stories.
Corpus Somnium is a pool of raw materials culled from our daily experience. Each fragment may seem at first glance to have no intrinsic value of its own, but upon classifying these scraps with a set of quick labels, their hidden relationships begins to surface, and the chain of interconnections takes form. When looking at these patterns over time, narratives begin to take shape, stories come into being.www.corpussomnium.org
