:-) Wren, always glad when I can tickle someones funny bone!
I'd just finished reading a whole slew of steampunk books and I was inspired by them. :-)
Very steampunk.....can't get any more steamy!
Absolutely love this one to bits, fantasic drawing and detail and of course i just love steampunk anyway.....this squid fits so well in that genre. wonderfully well done, i love the way you have it standing off from the background, and it's just so mega fabulous in yardage. i have to echo Victoria here also 25th? i was so expecting this to come top ten....just can't fathom how it didn't....pants!!! it should have done!!

25th? Oh well, over 300 people liked this and I'm looking forward to seeing it printed. Do you remember when 300 votes would have won!
This is brilliant! Squids and steampunk go together quite nicely
I was really trying to say it 5 times without error ... unfortunately it did not work. But it is a really beautiful design. Love your style of drawing! Great work.
Inscribed, thanks, eerie is perfect for victorian squid! Transport, a good calamari meal and fabric all rolled into one!
Jumping monkeys! Thanks and p.s. I love your username.
Imaginative and kind of eerie - the perfect ingredients for a great steampunk calamari recipe.
Cean, thanks mucho for the comment. I do think squid are kind of spooky.
Tallulah, Thanks for all the thumbs up! Great to be squidlike to give and get that many thumbs up!
Wow, I can hear the clanking and hissing steam just looking at this. Super idea and drawing, love the rusty tones. It's a perfect slightly spooky, vintage feel.
I love the detail of the four weights attached to the goldola to keep it from floating upward. Such a warm sort of Steampunk design. Eight thumbs up!
Nadja, Merci! I've got to work hard to keep up with everyone!
Drea, Thanks so much! I learned from my last deisgn (the koi paisley) that a lot going needs a little extra oompf to be seen clearly. It was fun figuring it out. (hahaha, mostly)
Ce dessin est absolument magnifique. j'aime beaucoup l'esprit antique du design encore un top 10 en perspective
Oh, great work - so much detail, but the color/tone doesn't make it confusing to the eye.
Cool creepy, I like it!
Definitely has a cool creepy, in a good way, vibe. Love the gold on gold color palette.
Shin, I'm hoping the steampunk community will fall for these little guys!
Kelly, creepy but loveable in their own squiddly way! Thank you!
Samarra, The old squid ARE devoured as delectable steampunk platters. Don't tell them k?
Patty, transportation to other lands! Huzzah, now I just need some Victorian ladies and gentlemen to ride the ships!
Mona and Sara, Thanks so much, I've learned to love the little squidys.
Catru, yeah, hard to love squid as they aren't the snuggliest of fellows.
Simboku, the squids needed ships cuz they kept squishing passengers or it was too hard to get passengers off their suckers. Took quite a while to figure out a solution for safe transport.
Sharon, huzzah for frocks of squid! Without the stinky fish market scent! Ha, I actually like he yardage view alot.
Rhonda, it's reflecting the golden age of squiddom!
ooh, perfectly creepy and lovely - really catches the steampunk vibe - well done!
Squid served up on a delectable steampunk platter of otherworldliness; love it!
This is so fantastical vo! It immediately takes me away to another land, I love it! :)
Vo, this is so unique and beautiful!
I love it!!! and not easy for me to love squids :D love the sand-colors you used, and how you did the background, and that ship.... awesome! :)
Very cool. Love the golden color of this fabric and your squid ships.
woah ~ surprisingly fabulous as yardage! I love your golds. shimmer shimmer.... love. There'll be a steampunk goddess out there somewhere wanting a frock in this ;) xxx
The glowing golden hues are perfect for your steampunk version of squid power, Vo!
Rachel, I like it: squid fun!
Marcia and Jillian, thanks to both of you. Squid are funny creatures that are odd to illustrate for fabric.
fantastically whimsical and fun!
Beautifully illustrated Vo! Such a fun take on the theme!
this is beautiful, I love the drawings and the colors!
