  47. Terrific. You ought to get together with whoever is posting those quixotic pics of the girlie strippers and mimes… What an interesting juxtaposition of whimsical talent you two would bring to any gallery! Any plans on becoming a curator? (And if so, please explain the puzzling piece with the girl in the cloud-room with the grass carpet. Or is it a drug analogy, with a horse lurking somewhere through the window? I wanna know!) Tell Erik thanks.

  63. Mark says:

    creative and interesting work. well done

  64. hnawelhik says:

    I prefere the gay whit bike

  65. JaneGael says:

    I didn’t realize until the end that you did all of these. Now I am 15 times more impressed. I have a friend who is a professional artist who told me how difficult it is to learn to do this, so I have a little understanding of the amount of work spent planning and then executing these works of art. I hope you have a long and lucrative career ahead of you.

  66. Wow really nice DI works. Well done!

  67. says:

    Love the mountain bike picture with the guy looking over the edge.

  83. Dzinepress says:

    really unique photo manipulation concepts you have there.

  84. TimM says:

    Dang, awesome pictures! The guy ironing himself was neat and the Ikea Volvo was hilarious!

  85. katerlake says:

    oh my god, it looks very great. i like it.

  86. I love design that messes with your perceptions! Although, I dont’ know about the cyclist and cliff. Grass isn’t going to grow sideways on a cliff…!

  87. bellering says:

    Ohmigod I love ALL of em’ they are fantastically creative!! I loved especially the first one 😀

    dGjess: for the volvo picture it looks like a person attempting to assemble a volvo car just like any other IKEA cabinets we bought home and trying to piece up using that L-shaped screwdriver fixer along with assembly instructions 🙂

  88. Johnson Koh says:

    I like first image the most, where the arms broken up instead of the vase 😀

  89. Bonnie says:

    These are great! Enjoyed every one of them! Inspiring!

  90. Robert says:

    Incredible, I love the ironing one! Thanks…

  91. Jason says:

    All of these are really great ideas and executed well. My only gripe is with the “Tetris Construction” image. Why does the picture from 1985 look like it’s from 1885?! I think the artist missed the chance to do a cool retro-corporate-style here. Well, just my 2 cents.

  92. Eulàlia says:

    brilliant! funny! impossible!

  93. dGjess says:

    wow the pictures re so amazing!i really love it!but the volvo thing i didn’t understand it. 🙂

  94. Jody Meyer says:

    these are great !!

  95. MonsterTruck08 says:

    Deserve a stumble buddy!

  96. Those are excellent! I love the one where the road goes straight down the cliff and just keeps going.

  97. Abdul says:

    Very Beautiful and creative.. Thanks for sharing.
