Steampunk and Fantasy ATCs, Tales Included

Geoffrey Teeth and Lilah Steampunk, Artist Trading Cards
Each 2.5″ x 3.5″, Copics, fine liners and white gel pen on smooth bristol board.

Because of a cleverly designed spring mechanism in his lower jaw, Geoffrey’s mouth can open and close in speech every once in a while. Because the motor takes so long to re-charge, he makes sure to save it for something important. The last time, several days earlier, produced the cryptic phrase, “Toads cannot move roads.” Made for Robots, Rocketry and Rayguns swap at but I had to keep him.

Lilah is an adventure girl. She was raised among wild animals by a rural physician and his military-trained wife. As a result, she can fly most small planes and stalk unseen through dense undergrowth. She can also set a broken leg and makes very neat stitches. If needed. Made for a Steampunk swap at

Roland One Eye, 2.5″ x 3.5″ ATC
Copics, fine liners, white gel pen

A veteran engineer of the Mechanical Horse Wars, Roland disappeared from city life for many years. But when a second generation of the Merrano Gang started causing trouble in New Chicago, Roland was reluctantly pulled from a quiet retirement.

Floria the Fey Queen and The Dogfaerie Queen
Each 2.5″ x 3.5″ Copics, fine liners, white gel pen

Floria the Fey Queen was the result of a forbidden union between a Valkyrie and a rare tree spirit. Hers is the final word on all matters of justice and death in the Wonder Woods.

The DogFaerie Queen was the first of her kind, created by a mad wizard’s experiment. He made four more before his death, and from these five all the others came. Nobody remembers her name. Only that she outlived the rest of the original pack by three generations. Both made for Winged Queens swap at

Lots of stuff outside my comfort zone but surprisingly pleased with the outcomes. Which is nice. Because that is hardly always the case! Thank you very much for stopping by! I am still looking into issues with my email subscriptions. Arrrgh.

    Cindy-these are really great – you´ve got this Steampunk theme down, Roland looks like quite a character! I haven´t even ventured intyo Steampunk land because I honestly wouldn´t evenknow where to start. (talk about way out of my comfort zone!) Flora the Fey Queen is beautiful, I really like this card – great composition, detail and colours! Have a fabulous Sunday :)

    They all look terrific Cindy! You’ve really captured Lilah’s adventurous spirit.She’s got attitude written all over her! And the patterns are particularly creative on both Lilah and Floria.

    Love them all, Cindy! My favorites today are Roland and the DogFaerie Queen!! Love them! I tried playing with a little steam punk this morning before work. I still don’t know what it’s going to be, but it’s entertaining me. he he :)

    Love this Steampunk theme! Like Geoffry Teeth, Roland Eye, and FairieDog Queen….but my favorite is FLoria Fey…..she’s monochromatic and cool and beautiful. Love the grey/silver elements in her. Checked out IllustratedATC and ATCforAll. Wish I could be prolific as these artists to do trading cards…..but have no time and can’t paint that fast!
