Here’s a thing I’ve had around in my head for a while!

Okay, so I’m pretty sure that by now everyone at least is aware of Steampunk, with it’s completely awesome Victorian sci-fi aesthetic. But what I want to see is Solarpunk – a plausible near-future sci-fi genre, which I like to imagine as based on updated Art Nouveau, Victorian, and Edwardian aesthetics, combined with a green and renewable energy movement to create a world in which children grow up being taught about building electronic tech as well as food gardening and other skills, and people have come back around to appreciating artisans and craftspeople, from stonemasons and smithies, to dress makers and jewelers, and everyone in between. A balance of sustainable energy-powered tech, environmental cities, and wicked cool aesthetics. 

A lot of people seem to share a vision of futuristic tech and architecture that looks a lot like an ipod – smooth and geometrical and white. Which imo is a little boring and sterile, which is why I picked out an Art Nouveau aesthetic for this.

With energy costs at a low, I like to imagine people being more inclined to focus their expendable income on the arts!

Aesthetically my vision of solarpunk is very similar to steampunk, but with electronic technology, and an Art Nouveau veneer.

So here are some buzz words~

Natural colors!
Art Nouveau!
Handcrafted wares!
Tailors and dressmakers!
Streetcars!
Airships!
Stained glass window solar panels!!!
Education in tech and food growing!
Less corporate capitalism, and more small businesses!
Solar rooftops and roadways!
Communal greenhouses on top of apartments!
Electric cars with old-fashioned looks!
No-cars-allowed walkways lined with independent shops!
Renewable energy-powered Art Nouveau-styled tech life!

Can you imagine how pretty it would be to have stained glass windows everywhere that are actually solar panels? The tech is already headed in that direction!  Or how about wide-brim hats, or parasols that are topped with discreet solar panel tech incorporated into the design, with ports you can stick your phone charger in to?

Drew my OC Tanya but got carried away with the AE’s puppet tool. The hardest part is saving a gif for the web. She has qualities of a leafy seadragon, but can shift in color like a cuttlefish does. Just wanted to draw something girly…and fishy.
TLDR; Yes I love anthros.

Giveaway time! 

Though he may call the Twisting Crescendo home, the feckless freebooting Cap’n Venka is a Fire Coatl through and through. In celebration of the Flameforger’s Festival, the infamous pirate airship the Boundless will be roaming wild in the skies, giving instead of pillaging mercilessly. Here’s what the crew has on offer: 

  • Prize 1: Oceanic Oxymoron! A 99-stack of Jumbo Shrimp, every pirate Coatl’s favourite snack. And every pirate Snapper’s favourite, as long as there are no plants on board. Results of the pirate Imperial and pirate Ridgeback snacking polls are non-conclusive.
  • Prize 2: Mind your Bloomers! A 99-stack of Greenpod Blooms, delicious when slow-roasted over an open flame. A beloved treat for Cap’n Venka’s Snapper crew.
  • Prize 3: Welcome to the Salty Spittoon! How tough are ya? These tough customers will show you a thing or two about toughness (toughly), and that Steam Gyre’s mighty good at being salty, too.
  • BONUS: BOUNTIFUL BABIES! Oops, it seems Cap’n Venka’s been a little indiscreet with his blood nemesis Nixie again. Instead of only giving away one hatchling, though, this whole nest is going out to whoever happens to catch one!

Well hot diggity, you may exclaim. How do I enter and what are the juicy details? LUCKY YOU, HERE’S MORE BULLET POINTS:

  • To enter, reblog with your FR name and ID

  • This ends when the Flameforger’s Festival does.

I used to wholeheartedly insist that I did not like eggs but this is a lie. I quite them them overcooked and with salt, or Ecuadorian style on rice with some avocado, cheese-filled potato pancakes, and a hotdog on the side.
