Steampunk Wizard of Oz

My supervisor and I were walking past the office of a new employee last week and my eye was caught by the dark/vivid colors of the image on his computer desktop. I stopped short and tried to figure out if I was seeing what I thought I was. I wanted to into the office for a closer look, but it didn't feel right. Instead I waited until the new resident walked by my desk and stopped him. "I couldn't help noticing the artwork on your desktop. Is that really a steampunk Wizard of Oz?"

He seemed as startled that someone had correctly identified it as I had been to see it in the first place!

It's an incredible piece. Please do click twice for full size and gorgeous detail.



The artist is Justin Gerard, and the image was posted on his Quick Hide Here blog: http://quickhidehere.blogspot.com/
If you like high quality fantast art I encourage you to check it out.


As an Oz purist, however, I do need to point out that the Scarecrow should not be unconscious. Scarecrows do not breathe and he would not have been affected by the poppies mushrooms.
