‘The Ships That Sail Through the Clouds’ by Luigi Prina, 83-year-old builder of flying model ships.

Luigi Prina, 83 years old, has been an architect for more than 50 years. He has been interested in aircraft modelling since a very young age. The flying ships are made from ultrathin paper and balsa wood. Everything is optimized for flight: from the weight (between 20 and 50 grams) to the aerodynamic shape. They fly like any propeller airplane. The only difference is that here the propeller is powered by an internal elastic band and not an engine.

Dystopian Metal: The Art of Greg Brotherton


More excellent steampunk influenced sculpture.

For Whom the Gear Turns

Metal is one of the most satisfying mediums I have ever worked with and I hope to get a chance to do more in the future. But even if I never do, I will always love metal art. The strength and flexibility of the material means an artist is really only constrained by the bounds of their imaginations (okay, and sometimes their tools). I really enjoyed these metal men and the world I imagine them inhabiting, especially the “search engine” and the “observatory.”

You can find more of Greg Brotherton’s artwork (including many different angles of the pieces I chose for my post), as well as pictures from his studio here.

I always like to hear about people from the Midwest finding success, and it looks like Greg is one of those people. Here’s his bio:

“Born in Ames, Iowa, in 1968, Greg experienced a somewhat nomadic childhood, spending…

Thanks ‘Robot of the Day’!

Here are my two favorite robots showing off the custom rob-doodle I won from ‘Robot of the Day‘. This blog is one of my favorites that brings a simple smile to my face every day. In addition to the robo-doodle I received two nice pins, and an adorable thank you note all wrapped in an envelope with an extra doodle on it. Special thanks to Arcee and the QiaCube for helping me display my prize 🙂

I’m looking forward to more happy and creative robots on my blog roll tomorrow!

Artist Spotlight – Mario Mallari Jr.


The other day some interesting steampunk sculpture came up on my blog feed. I appropriately liked the image and followed it to the blog where I found a great deal more fantastic sculpture. I soon hit the ‘follow’ button on the site and went on my way. Not long later I got a message on my Facebook author page from the blog author thanking me for my interest. He appreciated my art in writing, and so I’ve decided to return the favor by sharing my appreciation for his art in sculpture.

So here’s to Mario Mallari Jr., steampunk sculptor of the Philippines! I enjoy your creations (in particular the animal kind) immensely. Keep up the good work!
