IO9 has a plethora of unique and interesting articles… many of which have a longitudinal relationship to Steampunk. A few days ago, one of those articles snuck up on its board – one involving Victorian Silhouettes and Science Fiction characters. As most likely know, Silhouette Art was a popular means of image representation (yes, in the proverbial silhouette), of the Steampunk era, with exceptionally complex representations developing over time.
However, a Mr. O. Moss recently decided to engage in a project – composing silhouettes of famous (or at least well known) science fiction characters. At first, as scrolled though the brief selection in the IO9 piece, I was amused, but after visiting the gentleman’s website, where he has an impressive selection of his work, I was enraptured with either identifying those I liked, or simply trying to identify those which were challenging!
