This is a farewell gift I drew for an fantastic young woman who worked in my unit scanning books day in, day out. She usually had headphones on to listen to audio books, podcasts, etc. because scanning books day in, day out is dull dull dull.
One of the last book shipments she scanned was full of Victorian magazines with beautiful line drawings, so I thought a drawing in the style of those would be fitting. And if it’s going to be Victorian, why not steampunk it? Isn’t that required by law now?
