Henry Ford once worked at Thomas Edison's factory as a chief engineer. This photograph was taken in those years. Edison supposedly gave Ford a permission to study gasoline power while at the factory. These two didn't invent light bulb or automobile. They developed the idea and made it practical. I'd say bright idea comes from such environment as like-minded people gather. Tin Lizzie is a nickname for Ford's Model T. The light bulb at the top is actually a part of Edison's light bulb ad. I cut a stencil for the gears at the bottom. This is my attempt for steam punk style.
