Artist AlexCF describes himself as a “retrofuture cryptozoological assemblage artist and illustrator.”
i like to create items and objects from a past that wasnt quite; to fashion the things you wish existed in forgotten attics or secret rooms, dust covered relics of a time when the world was the same – but not quite, an age of wonder and intrigue. What you see here is the tip of a rather large iceberg, and over time i will reveal a plethora of oddities for you to enjoy, or buy.
His work is awesomely detailed and full of steampunky goodness, including items like the Werewolf Anatomical Research Box, the Lost World Exploration Case, and this Martian Botanical Preservation Device, a state-of-the-art terrarium that “contains the exact mixture of chemicals present in the martian atmosphere”, so Victorian-era (space) explorers could keep alive specimens of carnivorous plants from the Red Planet.
Each of his projects includes a fun little backstory. I want to decorate my house with this stuff.
