Detail of the fairy's mechanical appendages
The other day I was fortunate enough to receive an email from Mr. Ben Mart, the director of the Wicked Mr. Danior, who kindly provided as yet unreleased concept art (by Mr. Chris Down) from his cinematographic endeavor. As he extrapolated regarding the conceptual work...
The Wicked Mr Danior is proud to present inconjuntion with The Steampunk Tribune, the world's first preview of our steampunk'd tooth fairies by Chris Down 2009,(www.chrisdown.co.uk) Chris is one of the leading UK Fairy Artists, originally trained as an engineer he (thankfully), turned to drawing the fantasy and fairy kingdom's. We wish to thank him for the superb designs.
Concept art detail of the fairy's face and back
Our tooth fairies differ from other steampunk fairies, as our tooth fairies ain't "born" mechanical but natural and have been steampunk'd, adopted by the crazed tinder dwarf, Mr Monroe. As you can see the wings are used as the power source to drive the tools that help manufacture Danior's world famous dentures. On a intellectual basis I conotate this tooth fairy production line as a metaphor for the start of Industrail Revolution and how the rural workers and childern were forced economical and though brutal laws(the Inclosure Acts) into factories and mills in the new industrial cities of northern England.
