Steampunk Month Wallpaper Giveaway: Eric Freitas

It’s wallpaper time at Tor.com!

About a year ago I went to a steampunk exhibit in the Hamptons. The show had lots of interesting work but, to my mind, Eric Freitas’ clocks, beautifully hand-crafted with equal parts mechanical and organic shapes, stole the show—I have been lusting after them ever since. I love their sense of decay and growth, it feels like nature intruding on steampunk.

Eric has graciously allowed us to offer these two close-up shots as wallpapers. Enjoy these and then go check out his website and flickr set. You can easily watch an hour or two vanish by while looking the clocks, process shots, and drop-dead gorgeous sketches and drawings.
