Myths, Monsters & Machines: The World of Theo Paxstone

I'm curating an art show this September at Northern Contemporary Gallery: Myths, Monsters & Machines: The World of Theo Paxstone.

It's mixes steampunk aesthetic with medieval myth and monsters, touching on feudalism and oligarchy, as opposed to the critique of Colonialism generally associated with Victorian Steampunk.

It's a celebration of flights of fancy, of noble knights and dread beasts, of outlandish inventions driven by steam and magic.

My novel, Theo Paxstone and the Dragon of Adyron, is the port of departure; we've got a incredible set of artists involved, and it's going to be awesome to see where they take things.

The show opens September 28th, 2018.

More details, and a list of artists, coming soon.

We are also soliciting submissions in addition to the invited, opening up the playground to interested parties. You can see the submission info here.

Spread the word.

This show's gonna rock!
