Meet Algernon

You may recall my first Steampunk dragon, Oliver.  At that time, I mentioned Oliver’s friend was tuckered after his long flight.  As you can see, he basically crash-landed on my craft table.  Algernon somehow bears a striking resemblance to the fridge-eating mutt I had a few years ago.  Hopefully, he doesn’t have a similar fondness […]
