I havent uploaded any real substantial work as of late, so this little guy is a breath of fresh air.
Meet Archemedes Hootson, the Automaton Owl!
He's a little owl I found in Home Goods and decided to paint with brown Krylon spray paint, acrylics and other doodads. The back 'wind-up' piece is actually an old vintage luggage lock mechanism and a real antique key. Theres also a gear and gemstone for added class.
Hootson is listed on the joint Etsy store I share with my boyfriend, called Thanatos Trinkets. He is listed for 25 dollars, and if you would like to scoop him up as part of your Steampunk family, he'd be delighted to hold a place in your heart. <3
