Steampunk artist Myke Amend's paintings of airships are almost deceptively serene, with ornate ships sailing through icy skies. But tentacles and sea monsters lurk in the background, hinting at high adventure and grave dangers.

The airship paintings are part of Amend's "Airships and Tentacles" series, in which he combines Jules Verne-inspired technology with Lovecraftian monsters. They're all available as prints at Amend's store, which also features Amend's other steampunk-inspired paintings and engravings, such as "Nautilus 20,000 Leagues," also below.
