Ready for Print: The AURELIA BESTIARY

Just in time for the end of the show, our 28-page comic-sized manual of Aurelian monsters, machines, and mutants is headed to print! Awhile back, we posted photos of the City Beast Studio team at work, and one of the book’s early draft pages.

Here’s the final version of a different page. Altogether the book features 32 original images by seven different artists . . . along with text that’s written as if by an enclave of crusty Aurelian scientists.

Congratulations to a Deserving Aurelian!

As we celebrate the final week of Aurelia, the show team was excited to learn that one of our actors, Marcus Rauchfuß, with his co-author Alex Jahnke, has won an award for his contributions to speculative fiction in the German-language guide Steampunk -kurtz & geek. (For our American audience, Marcus tell us this work is similar to The Steampunk Bible.) Marcus is also the curator of the popular blog, Daily Steampunk.

What can we say? Aurelians are an enterprising and talented lot!

Meet Octavia

You open the door and take a seat near the bar. Smoke fills the air. A group of seedy-looking individuals sits in the corner, whispering amongst themselves in the confines of the shadows. Those must be the people you’re looking for, but that can wait. It’s been a long day, and you could use a bite to eat and maybe a drink first. A woman approaches you from behind the bar. “Welcome to Octavia’s,” she says. “What can I get you?”

We’ve got some artwork to unveil today, showing off our new character Octavia. This piece comes courtesy of artist Ignacio Narbona.
