Igor Verniy creates amazing steampunk animal junkbots from watch parts, car parts and electronic junk (here's his Etsy store); in this Bored Panda interview, he explains his process.
"At heart, I'm an artist, and see the beauty of this world in bright colors, but I'm a technician, too," Igor Verniy explained to Bored Panda. "The combination of these two qualities has led to the creation of metal models"
Igor says that he is inspired by the "outside world, in particular biology and the question of the origin of life. and all natural science, and dreams about the future of human civilization"
"Many people bring me old items that I can make in my shop, but I also buy a lot of objects at flea markets and collect them in the garages of my brothers and friends. All parts are sorted by category"
