lorafaerie asked: Hi, have you ever wandered across the whimsical steam-punk art of Brian Kesinger? He can be found on deviant art, and his work is also featured on the 'art of animation' tumblr blog - if your adventures have not yet stumbled across his work; enjoy :)

Thank you dear Reader for your question. I have stumbled across the art of Brian Kesinger. I’m afraid it’s not quite my cup of tea - I prefer my steampunk art to be a bit more photorealistic or Victorian-looking.

Your Humble Servant,

etc.

Campbell heads to the V&A for an Approaches to the History of Art shoot. Campbell looks cute as a button here, with her books, backpack, Leica camera, and geeky glasses, rivaling many of the usual scruffy students you might see. She also looks fashionable to boot, dressed in bright 90s-inspired outfits.
