For the last few days, the weather people around here have been talking about wednesday WEDNESDAY WEDNESDAY!! All this hype for WEDNESDAY.
It's supposed to rain rain rain. Flood watches and warnings. Flash flooding in the two burn scars. We've already seen some of that this summer, but WEDNESDAY is going to be messy. Roads downstream from burn areas will likely be washed out. Damaged. Again.
I even drove Wolfgang to his carpool this morning. They meet at Jack's house, and when it's not Wolfgang's turn to drive, he enjoys a nice 3-mile or so bike ride to Jack's house.
But it was overcast. It was WEDNESDAY. It wasn't raining, not yet, but it would start any minute. Plus, after work, it would either be pouring down or the bike paths would be flooded or both.
Since we were up talking to the trees over the weekend, I didn't do an Illustration Friday. I was just going to skip, but I kinda started having withdrawals. Then we had all the weather people screaming about Wednesday. I chose to illustrate this week's prompt, "Hybrid" for a rainy day activity.
I rather like this steampunk movement among artsy geeks. Steampunk fashion and accessories feature components of steam driven machinery. We saw plenty of it at this year's Comic Con. Lots of goggles, gear drives, chains, etc. thrown together with clothing fashions from Victorian England or Old Time American West.
It's fun. It's creative. It's hybrid. It's Steampunk.
