Steampunk Octopus by adalheidis Steampunk Octopus by adalheidis
My official debut in steampunk style, what do you think?

Manually cut in leather using surgical scalpel; about 20 cm (7.87 in) diameter, with old clock parts. Painted with white waterproof ink, brown shoe polish and Staedtler permanent markers, all waxed at the end.
Comission for a friend, it will be mounted on the back of a vest.
More info, details and such on my FB www.facebook.com/pages/Alicja-…

Hopefully I will one day offer such steampunk leather things in my Etsy shop, but no sooner then in about a month.
Sorry everybody, I just have so much work lately (juggling 4 commissions at once right now) I really have little time for da Internetz, but I do remember about all of you! I WILL BE BACK! :ahoy:

EDIT:

This would make a good car window or bumper decal too.  Right now, I'm just using it for branding cattle

Seriously awesome. I thought it was metal at first glance but was quite intrigued to see it was cut out of leather. Nice job. I will be sure to check out the rest of your work.
