Today’s wallpaper is from Greg Manchess:
The painting is based on a well known piece by Abbott Handerson Thayer. I was developing a character for a children’s book of a female inventor, an aviatrix, in the style of Jules Verne I liked so much. I had no idea in 1990 there was a growing sub-genre of admirers of the trend, more broadly known later as “Steampunk.”
