New Arsenal Product
We have a brand new vector pack on the Go Media Arsenal called Gears. It contains 30 high-quality vector illustrations. They are fully editable and customizable and they are contained in one easy to download Adobe Illustrator file. The Gears Vector Pack was created by designer and illustrator Steve Knerem. He is the mastermind behind past Arsenal releases in the steampunk vector series: Pipes and Vents & Whistles.
If you are unfamiliar with steampunk, read below for more info about this genre:
What Is Steampunk?
Steampunk is a genre that originated during the 1980s and early 1990s and incorporates elements of science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, horror, and speculative fiction. It involves a setting where steam power is widely used—whether in an alternative history such as Victorian era Britain or “Wild West”-era United States, or in a post-apocalyptic time —that incorporates elements of either science fiction or fantasy. Works of steampunk often feature anachronistic technology, or futuristic innovations as Victorians might have envisioned them, based on a Victorian perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, and art. This technology includes such fictional machines as those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or the contemporary authors Philip Pullman, Scott Westerfeld, and China Mieville. Steampunk also refers to art, fashion, and design that are informed by the aesthetics of steampunk literature.
A little bio from Steve’s website:
Who Is Steve Knerem?
I’m simply passionate about becoming the best illustrator I can be. I believe I am born for this purpose and plan to leave the biggest mark in history I can before my days of being immortal are over. My training officially began once I graduated from The Cleveland Institute of Art in 2004 with a focus in Illustration. Since that day I haven’t stopped learning and pushing and gaining ground.
I always say to myself and in blogs that I write or talks that I give, that we all have to find our own path. I believe this is true. I hope to always produce something you have never seen before and provide the best solution possible for every need presented before me.
