Steampunk Skateboard

Steampunk is a very popular genre that incorporates the science fiction technology envisioned by Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, among other related influences, into modern culture through art, fashion, design, music,video games, and film.  The cool and intricate Steampunk machines rely on iron, brass, gears, chains, rivets, and similar mechanical devices from the steam age.  In this image, Russell has applied the idea to a skateboard.  The skateboard is motorized.  To the left is the air intake.  The mechanics and dials dominate the center.  To the right is a fan and exhaust pipes.  The skateboard is for sale.  No prints are available.  Russell plans on future Steampunk paintings on canvas.
