What would you do if you woke up and your whole bedroom has become an aquarium? And what would you think if, while you’re watching a movie with your partner, you suddenly found yourself surrounded by squirrels? Decades before Photoshop was available, American photographer and installation artist Sandy Skoglund started creating surreal images by building [...]
Do you have trouble making yourself appreciate classic art? Then these photoshopped paintings of modern celebrities are a great way to slowly ease yourself into something more classy. Wether we’ll admit it or not, most of us enjoy a good gossip magazine. So why not convince yourself that classic art is just as entertaining. Flip through [...]
You can’t change the past. Or can you? Photoshop wizard Flóra Borsi has been doing for a while. Using humour and quick wit, the 19 year-old Hungarian artist puts a spin on famous black and white photographs. What would happen if Elvis Presley’s fans all had cell phones at his concerts? Well, take a look at Borsi [...]
Artist Gyyp likes to blend different species. That’s it. He uses all his Photoshop skills to create unexpected combinations like Slawk, Killer Penguin, Heagle and so on. Some species are actually cute, like the Guinea Bear. But most of his stuff is just plain weird.
I was made aware of Jeremy Wong’s playful approach to Life Buoy Soap’s You Eat What You Touch advertising campaign recently. The pug loaf in particular made me smile. His other work is definitely worth a look, too.
Budapest-based photographer Flora Borsi wondered what Photoshop would look like in real life, so she made a bunch of manipulated photos — what else? — parodying photoediting tweaks such as the patch tool and hue/saturation presets. These are way fun.
Nothing I say can do this man justice. One literally has to see his work to experience its true awesomeness. Created entirely in Photoshop, Rapoza’s digital illustrations portray creatures of all shapes and sizes, lit so amazingly that you are almost convinced that they are going to climb out the screen, punch you in the stomach, and rip your guts out. His work is truly inspirational.
Sometimes the dumbest idea is the best idea. Case in point Birdswitharms. This is photoshop at its most inspiring. It is simply tons of photos of birds doctored up to have human arms. I will forever hate myself for not thinking of this first. Thankfully though, somebody else did.
Japanese hobby photographer Tsuneaki Hiramatsu used time-lapse photography techniques to take numerous continuous long-exposure shots of fireflies at night in southern Okayama, and merged these shots afterwards in Photoshop. Now, if these pictures were taken over three years between 2008-2011, and the average lifespan of fireflies is a few weeks, we must be looking at several generations of fireflies in these images.
Photoshop-manipulating pictures before posting them on Facebook? Nothing unusual about that. But UK-based illustrator and graphic designer Ewa Mos takes this idea in a different direction, illustrating over pictures of faces in a delicate and divisive manner.
There are few benefits to being born a Soviet. After 25 years as a Moldovan, however, I have identified three: pickled delicacies, rose gold, and the god given right to laugh at other Russians. I think there is just something undeniably hilarious about stereotypical Russians, and for the next five minutes, I extend my birthright to you, reader, so that you can be unrestrained in your enjoyment of these awfully photoshopped Russian wedding pictures.
Digital media artist Greta Poulsen’s latest exhibition, Shift, features a compilation of moving images compressed into one still image. The moving images are from the television series, Dragnet 1967. Photoshop compares each frame and combines the result so that anything that is moving in the frame is manipulated, while everything that stays still remains relatively unchanged.
Teen prodigy Zena Santos’ love for Photoshop developed at a young age. Now the 19-year-old has further developed her uniquely dazzling illustrative style. She’s halfway through completing a Multimedia Design degree at Sydney’s Billie Blue College of Design. If she’s this good now, imagine the calibre of work she’ll be producing in another few years.
