Artist | Hobbyist | Artisan Crafts
United States
I currently live in Richmond, Virginia, but I probably wont live here very long. I'm always moving for one reason or another. I'm married to a beautiful and smart lady who shares many of my hobbies and eccentricities, and those she doesn't share, she accepts. I'm an artist of many talents, but I'm not an expert at any form or medium of art. If you look at my gallery you'll notice I jump around from one thing to another. Yes I AM color blind... not completely of course, but I do have a hard time properly identifying and recognizing colors. I wasn't always color blind, it came upon me in the last half of my life, so I know what colors SHOULD look like, I just don't see them that way any more. So if I know the name of a color, I can usually properly use it in an art project.

I got into Steampunk around late 2009 and have jumped boots first into that world. I was lucky that Cincinnati and Ohio in general had a great and large Steampunk community, which allowed me to gain many friends and grow into the steampunk community. Now in Richmond, VA though, my wife and I are working to build a Steampunk community that will allow us to have a similar social life as we had in Cincinnati.

I try to do some tabletop gaming now and then, hence all my painted miniatures, but I don't do it regularly any more. I have had so many hobbies in my lifetime, that I often have to "trade in and out" of them so as not to fill my home with unused junk. I often sell off the accoutrements of one hobby to be able to enter into another.

For my profession I do simple HTML coding, convert learning materials to online formats and handle content management for a Distance Learning bachelor's degree program that is administered through the Blackboard learning environment.


Starry Eyed Steampunk Goggles
These one of a kind pair of goggles were kind of an accident by a student engineer at the Tek University. He thought he could make a pair of goggles that could see through walls, but he failed. In his youthful exuberance to make somthing no one has aver made before, he ended up making a pair of goggles that had invisible lenses. When he saw his mistake, he simply added a pair of dark sun glare lenses and turned these expensive and fantastic looking pair of goggles into nothing more than a fancy pair of sunglasses.

Can be purchased on my etsy page here:…

These steampunk goggles are made from:
Hobart 50MM welding/brazing goggles
Jewelry pendants
A juice bottle cap
2 part epoxy
Cyanoacrylite gel glue
Spraypaint (primer)
Rub N Buff (for the metallic finish)|
Acrylic paint
Steampunk Dueling Set - Dart Zone Blitzfire
A Mr. Aloysius Fox, the founder of a Symposium back in Ohio, requested from the Tek Armory a pair of dueling pistols to be used to solve some sort of "Gentlemanly" dispute during his Symposium.


This pair of dueling pistols is made from Dart Zone Blitzfire blasters, a Target Exclusive set of two. You can see the entire creation process at the following youtube playlist:…

The two pistols together took a combined 5 hours to finish.
Hi everyone,

I know a lot of you follow me because you like how I often explain how I've made my guns or goggles, and give materials lists. Well this week I did something I've been meaning to do forever. I made a set of Youtube tutorials covering my entire process for making/painting a Steampunk blaster. I literally videod EVERY part of the process from just out of the package to finished. If you REALLY want to see what it takes to make what I make, these videos will show you.

Here is the link to the playlist:…

I'll soon be submitting a deviation with the blaster I created in this video.
  • Listening to: 1930s Jazz
  • Reading: Path of Daggers by Robert Jordan
  • Watching: Family Guy
  • Playing: Borderlands 2
  • Eating: Chicken Salad on Crackers
  • Drinking: Water with water enhancer.
At the end of April I'll be traveling back to my old city of Cincinnati, to attend the International Steampunk Symposium. But before then I'm working on one last project: A set of "NERF" dueling pistols to enter into the NERF duel competition. (NERF is in parentheses because they aren't NERF branded.) I'll try to get pictures of them up on DA before I leave, I don't know yet how soon I'll be done with them.
  • Listening to: Nothing
  • Reading: Nothing
  • Watching: Nothing
  • Playing: Borderlands 2
  • Eating: Nothing

Steampunk Hunting Rifle - Commissioned
The Tek Armory doesn't do this often, but they decided this was a time to make an exception. A great Russian hunter requested a unique and precisely accurate hunting rifle that shoots aetheric charged rounds to be used against the seemingly undead creatures that survived the comet impact zones. These creatures have become a scourge across the land and many communities are offering rewards for their elimination.

This is a repaint of a Max Force Shadow Hawk 100, which is a glorified spitball shooter. Only one small cosmetic modification was made on the end of the barrel. (an orange juice cap)

Other materials used:
Krylon Fusion Satin Black spray paint
Rub N Buff: Silver Leaf, Pewter, Antique Gold, Gold Leaf
Vallejo Acrylic Game Color and Model Color: Black, German Black Brown, Beasty Brown
Krylon Fusion Satin Clear Coat spray paint
AMACO All Purpose Sealer
