Continuing on from the February 7, 2014 post “Place Based” Inspiration, some of our returning contributors and a couple of new volunteers have widened our net of Worldly Inspiration…
Adding to our places from my last post, we know have a few more stars to add to our sky…

Amalia: I came into contact with Steampunk about 3 years ago and started organizing meet ups in Hamburg in 2012. I participated in the first German Steampunk festival Aethercircus as a portrait artist and in my free time I like drawing or painting steampunkish and other art, which can be seen here:
Some of my Steampunk objects can be seen here (German website):
Krista Cagg: Age is irrelevant. It’s all subjective. Let’s just say that Krista Cagg is old enough to know better, but young enough to not care. She lives in northern central Pennsylvania with Pete the Wonder Wiener, her husband and her mother. Having spent most of two decades living in the deep south, she has come to appreciate a good snowfall and a decided lack of large spiders. She is typically neck deep in multiple writing projects which isn’t as impressive as it seems since she is rather short. Given the opportunity, she prefers a little horror in her steampunk.

Patxi Larrabe: From Berango in the Basque Country of Spain, Patxi contributes to the Steampunk magazine “El Investigador.” A member of the independent artistic collective “Mercenarios de DIOS,” he is also a founding member of the Basque Steampunk community, Basque Steampunk.
Lady Smoke (Andrea D. Boglioli): She’s a retronaut, seeker of lost memories in the coffers of a time that could have been. Spontaneous promoter of Retrofuturisms and Steampunk music in Latin America. Founder of “Sociedad Steampunk Argentina”, “Sindicato Dieselpunk”, “Dieselpunk Argentina” and “Steamgoth Argentina”. Organizer of Steampunk/Die-selpunk events for “Argentina”. She’s member of the artistic collective Mercenarios de DIOS; she’s also dedicated to the analysis of the scene from different contexts and cultures where it could be developed. She’s from Buenos Aires, Argentina; her real name in Andrea R. Díaz Boglioli. Her interest in the scene led her to promote and revive the community of her country that was inactive with only 80 members back in 2011. From then on, the growth was continuous and make them able to establish a stable community with regular meetings, participating in various conventions and organizing their own events. Being their main goal to save the manners and lost elements of the history of their own culture, from the era in which the Steampunk is inspired, amalgam with the current era, considering herself as a “Retrofuturistic Maleva”, or a Steampunk with a twist of Tango
