Steampunk Gas Masks (UPDATE)

Artist Tom Banwell specializes in a variety of different works of art, but his most cogent and effective speciality is a collection of science fiction influenced steampunk gas masks that seem more at home in a William Gibson or Ray Bradbury novel than on someone’s face.

As an artist, Tom Banwell’s creations are entirely original, and feature deft workmanship and dedication. Each of his masks are wearable, and fashionable. One suspects his penchant for creating such memorable steampunk gas masks is that the sci-fi headgear manages to blend Tom’s biggest interests: history, costumes, and fantasy.

I’m not one for freakish masks, but Tom Banwell’s craftsmanship has me considering a trip into another realm. Look through our gallery to see some of the highlights from his workbook.
