    I love the mountain

      Thanks Meghan. The mountain is a drawing of an ancient extinct volcano, “Mount Mazama,” which eventually formed Crater Lake in Oregon. The picture is taken from a physical geography text published in 1907.

    That is very cool. Sort of like “Around the World in 80 Days” gone wild.

      Thanks! That’s very kind of you. I never thought about the connection to the Jules Verne story; it’s an interesting way to look at the picture.

      Thanks, Tina. Yes, it’s about a couple of journey, one mental and the other physical.

    It reminds me of “The Little Engine that Could”. Which is sorta surprising, since it has been like a half century since I read that book last!

    Happy WW,

      Thanks! Yes: even though the thought came to me to put up the world as a satellite, it confuses me also. And I feel that’s part of the fun.

    I like! This one feels a bit steampunky to me- the combination of the vintage and technological creation. Very neat!

    • Eric Edelman April 18, 2012, 12:39 pm

      Thanks for your kind comments. I feel a lot of my work is aligned with steampunk sensibilities because its source material is taken from Victorian engravings. To see more work like this, please visit my Fine Art America website at: http://eric-edelman.artistwebsites.com/art/all/all/all
