Dieselpunks will not fall!

I need your help. Dieselpunks could be closed by Halloween, but you can keep it alive!

Since launching Dieselpunks in 2009 as a safe haven and inspiration for diesel and steampunk artists, we’ve become one of the largest and most active punk communities in the world. And now, over five years later, we’re going to be forced to close this community unless you can help.

The cost of covering our hosting and music licensing fees for 2014-2015 has exceeded what my paycheck can support. The solution is to raise the funds via Kickstarter.

Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

While our book is being streamlined (it's a slow, sometimes painful process), I'm trying to get together various books, films, etc. - everything that years ago gave us a spark, a challenge, an impetus to create a world of our own.

It's quite a wild mix:

Robert Harris, Enigma - is there a better desription of a secret compound and its inhabitants?

István Szabó, Father - a dozen variants of past that never was, each one more creadible than reality.

Philip K. Dick, The Man in the High Castle, an undisputed AH classic.

Milorad Pavić, Unique Item - a world where dreams (in our case: visions) can serve as evidence.

Frederick Forsyth, The Odessa File - another classic, the ultimate conspiracy/investigation story.

Andrew Niccol, Gattaca - a tale very different from ours but there are more common points than it seems; false identity, for instance.

What inspires YOU?

Some of my biggest sources of inspiration are movies, and some of my favorites are the following:

Howl's Moving Castle by Hayao Miyazaki

Porco Rosso by Hayao Miyazaki

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

The Rocketeer

and dozens upon dozens of comic books. Also Google is a Godsend when I want to have inspiration for making something a certain way, just type in what I need and it pops right up!

Of all comic books, Corto Maltese was my favorite. Meet Corto the Incomparable, by Hugo Pratt:

Everything from Elmer Kelton (westerns) to old maps, photo collections and films. I love Cormac McCarthy for style.
