Steam Kong!

Last Friday, Pye Parr (Abaddon Books' designer and cover artist par excellence) posted this comment on Twitter: "Did this today, pretty chuffed with it!"

And the image he posted with it?

Time's Arrow Part 3 is coming...

One-Man Steampunk Machine

Does exactly what it says on the tin (man), so to speak. And very proud of it I am too!
This image is my new avatar, as designed and drawn by ace Abaddon Books designer and Time's Arrow cover artist Simon Parr. (Just check out the detailing - the Pax Britannia medal, the dip pen in the hat band, the text on the scroll...)

You can check out much of his other work - both illustration and design - at his website here.

I have also commissioned Simon (or Pye as he's known to his friends) to work on another project for me, but more on that another time...

If the Pax Britannia setting was ever turned into a video game, I would hope that somebody somewhere would be playing it using one of these...
