Mike Libby's creations are some of the most elegant steampunk artwork I've had the pleasure to find. Starting with gorgeously preserved insect specimins, he adds cogs, lights and other mechanical parts to create a completely one-of-a-kind piece of art.
I personally find it inspiring on account of how delicate the work is and how huge the dichotomies in concepts are. Metal meeting chitin. Bright colors meeting drab earth tones. Take a look; you won't be disappointed.
