20,000 Leagues Under With Tea

When I was asked if I'd like to show some work at the 20,000 Leagues spring Steampunk event I knew that I wanted to create something especially for the occation.

'20,000 Leagues Under With Tea' is inspired by my love of retro science fiction, the theme of the event and the lovely headline act, Horatio Kuppa Tea and the Zeppilin Crew.


The painting depicts the band in the grasps of a jiant squid, whilst unknowingly holding one of her babies hostage in their tea pot. Her other millions of babies are attracted by the commotion and decide to boogie along to their music.
