And while we're doing breathtaking one-image features, here's Kazuhiko Nakamura's brand new piece Atoma - a spectacular homage to Osamu Tezuka's iconic Tetsuwan Atomu - yes, you could tell by looking at Atoma's hair... err... spirals, couldn't you?

As the artist himself puts it, it's a "biomechanical Astro Boy" so if I read any mentions of "steampunk" in the discussion thread, your comment will be glue gunned and your IP stuck to a cog and sold on Etsy. Cause that's what happens with steampunk. Yes.

If you happen to be Facebook friends with Kazuhiko, you can see in-progress pictures of Atoma here.
