In the recent post “Collage’s Steampunk Kingdom,” Art of RetroCollage briefly introduced the subject of automata throughout history, and presented three collage tributes to them: imaginary “steampunk” animals fashioned out of 19th-century engravings of machine parts, tools, and other manmade objects.

Here are three more animal subjects from the steampunk kingdom of collage. We hope that you will find them enjoyable and stimulating. May they also inspire you to explore ordinary objects and the imaginative ways they can combine.

Lovely selection of collages this week. I like the giraffe one the best.

I love today’s art Eric! I agree with Dominque. That giraffe is my favorite piece yet! 🙂

Eric Edelman February 4, 2014, 6:07 am

Thank you so much! I’m glad you like it 😀

so creative, love the use of the gun of the giraffe

Eric Edelman February 4, 2014, 6:09 am

Thanks very much! (It’s probably one of the better uses for a gun. 😉 )

Really interesting. I love the dog and the fish, but unlike NYSingleMom, I don’t like the guns as leg, although it is a better use of guns.

Believe me, Rhonda, if I could have found images that worked as well as the gun pictures did, I would have used them 😉 Unfortunately, nothing ever did fit as well. Thanks for your visit and your kind comment!
