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?

The protagonists of that orc/elf gay webcomic with Nietzschean demons that I’d mentioned.

Elves are a species that spans the entire world, filling every habitable biome. As a result, there are a number of different races, cultures, and languages among them. The legend goes that elves are descended from demons who traded their immortality to cleanse the taint from their souls—and thus, even today, elves grow horns as demons do. Alisher sheds his horns every winter, just as deer do.

Orcs, in contrast, are relatively geographically limited. But for a few settlements abroad, they inhabit a single (small) continent; their imperial history means that despite regional differences, they nonetheless share several cultural touchstones and a common language family. Orcs are known throughout the world for the high quality of their textiles, and embroidery is one of their chief arts.

From the perspective of someone who just drew every single stitch on Olek’s jacket, let me just say—embroidery is hard, y’all. Don’t go down this path unless you have a really, really good reason.

This is an illustration I did for the August 2014 issue of Popular Science Magazine. The assignment was to show a scifi take on human aging in the future. I wanted to do something relatively positive, so I drew a lady whose life has been been prolonged through cybernetic enhancements and augmentation, so she gets to spend time with her great-great-great-great grandchildren. 
Thanks to AD Michelle Mruk!

Disney vs. 7 early fairytales 

The 1812 version of Snow White is even worse when you consider that the girl was only seven years old in the tale (plus her unconscious body ended up being carted around by the prince until one of his servants accidentally woke her up).  Also, in The Little Mermaid, the mermaid’s unable to speak because she had her tongue cut out >__<

But I’d love to see faithful adaptations of the original tales.  Especially Bluebeard.  We need a Bluebeard adaptation.

Actually, the original-original pre-Grimm Brothers’ stories that were passed around Europe via oral tradition are nowhere near as violent as the Grimm’s made them. Cinderella’s stepsisters were never ugly and kept their eyes, Snow White’s mother was not even a villain (instead a group of bandits were), and instead of spending the whole story napping Sleeping Beauty outwitted a dangerous bandit leader, wouldn’t let him sleep with her, and saved herself. 

The original oral stories were radically changed by the Brothers Grimm to fit their personal and political beliefs. Most notably, they often added in female characters solely for the purpose of making them evil villains and took away most of the heroines’ agency and intelligence. Both brothers belonged to a small fanatical sect of Catholicism that vilified women because of the idea of Original Sin and Wilhelm in particular had a particularly deep hatred of women. The Grimms were actually pretty horrible people. Those cannibalistic queens and ugly stepsisters and the mass amount of violence against women didn’t exist until the Grimms wanted them to. Their ideas stuck so soundly though that we now assume they were in the original tales and that these terrible characters and ideas come out of some perceived barbaric Old World culture. But in truth they’re really the Grimms’ weird obsession with hating women showing through. The original oral folklore focused on the heroes’ and heroines’ good deeds and used them as ways to teach cultural norms and a society’s rules and encouraged girls to be quick-witted and street-savvy instead of passive princesses, and the Grimms promptly stripped that all away. 

"Grimms Bad Girls and Bold Boys" by Ruth Bottingheimer is an excellent book on this

I am so happy about this post, you have no idea.

HOLYSHIT

That sounds really cool. How did they find competing versions of the oral stories other than the Grimms’ tales?

Also, I kind of like the idea of Belle and the Beast just cuddling in bed, not doing anything more than kissing.

I’ve seen this post pass my dash before — “Grimm’s Bad Girls and Bold Boys” seems worth a look, but does it support the claim that the Grimm Brothers belonged to “a small fanatical sect of Catholicism”? Everything I’ve read has stated that the Grimm Brothers were some flavor of Calivinist, which is a Protestant religion. 

Moreover, I recently read "Clever Maids: The Secret History of Grimm’s Fairy Tales," which argues that the Grimm brothers’ sources were on the whole middle-class, educated women. The Grimm brothers misrepresented them as ‘simple peasant folk,’ but the book does delve into the tales they shared, and how they could express female daily life and female anxieties. I’d suggest reading it alongside “Bad Girls and Bold Boys,” though not instead of it! 

Something my sources have always agreed on, though, is that tales are shaped by the person telling them — including the folklorist who records, edits, and compiles them. I’m 100% certain that the Grimm Brothers pushed their own ideas and agendas on their collections. What I’m not 100% of is that there was a body of “original-original pre-Grimm Brothers’ stories” we can compare them with. We can and definitely should compare them with other records and retellings! But they’d be just that. Competing versions of stories. If the Grimm Brothers did something wrong, it wasn’t in corrupting a purer “original,” but in a choice they made to tell the story one way and not another.

Was digging through my old work folder and came across these roughs from last summer. They were originally going to be shown at a theme-park gallery run by a company that rhymes with “Bisney”. Needless to say, there was some weirdness with contract stuff and the project fell through. Thought it would be fun to share these anyhow!
