Jason is Rose's boyfriend and the captain of his steam-powered airship. He's confident and cocky, and his pet raven, Jacques, is a bit too smart for his own good!
I had fun addapting our modern, romanticized ideas about pirates to my burgeoning steampunk world, albeit with a few changes: No self-resepcting pirate captain is complete without an avian companion or a treasure chest. I liked the idea of a raven much better than a parrot, especially one with a clockwork wing, so I came up with Jacques. The treasure chest also has a distinct mechanical feel.
Jason's uniform is a combination of several historical uniforms. I pulled my references heavily from 18th century French and British naval officer outfits.
Jason and Rose will be on display together at several American Quilter Society shows over the next year, starting with QuiltWeek Daytona in February 2020.
