Art Direction: Steampunk

On deciding the type of art direction I want to take my adaption of 'Around the World in 80 Days' in I looked at what has and what hasn't already been done with past adaptations as I want to make sure I am original with my design. I also thought about which direction would compliment elements of the book well. Phileas Fogg's extreme habit of accuracy of numbers and time keeping makes him seem a bit like a machine. There are also a lot of mechanical and technological advances influencing the book so it seemed right that steampunk would be appropriate.

Here are a couple of influence maps looking at steampunk in art as well as exisiting uses in film and game.
