Sparks & Steam
Books ~ Art ~ Badassery
Founded in 2019
Sparks & Steam offers unique products that are steampunk-esque, beautifully macabre or are just simply badass! These include original artwork, art prints, stickers, bookmarks, magnets, and more created and designed by artist Devin Wineinger. We are perfect for people who love unusual, creative, and high-quality artwork and wares from a small business!

Fan Art For A Cause
Using Art For Good
We want to use our art for good, so 100% of proceeds from the fanart we sell at Sparks & Steam is donated to World Vision. Just look for the orange "All Proceeds Donated to World Vision" sticker!
During January through July all the donations we collect will be given to World Vision's Clean Water Fund.
Thank you so much for your generous support!
We aim to be a trustworthy business that treats others as we want to be treated. We donate what we say we will donate, we strive to keep deadlines as much as possible, and we dutifully collect and pay our taxes. It’s just good business!
"So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets."
"Then Jesus said to them, “Give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.” And they were amazed at him."
We are blessed to be able to give to others. Not only do we donate 100% of our fanart proceeds to World Vision, 10% of all of our sales gets donated between four different charities.
"And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased."
"Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.
Proverbs 3: 9-10
We do our best to give you products that are well made with quality materials. We want to offer wares with high standards that will last for years to come.
"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving."
We believe creativity is a gift from God and we enjoy creating things that are unusual and that bring delight and intrigue to people.
