Nowadays we have so many art tools and software like Photoshop or Illustrator that almost everyone can create art. Even though it's really exciting that we have so many opportunities, at the same time it's becoming more and more difficult to create something that would be thrilling and different from others. However, one artist still manages to do that. Previously featured on Bored Panda here and here, Atlanta-based creative director and Instagram star Stephen McMennamy is back with his new surreal photo mash-ups!

His ongoing digital collage series is called 'ComboPhoto' and we should say it's a pretty intriguing personal project. He creates fascinating collages by combining photos of unrelated items and playful scenes, carefully splitting them in half and placing them next to each other. The interesting part is that he doesn't use stock images so he takes every photo himself so sometimes it can take weeks for him to find the perfect subject!

"I was bored (no pun intended)... just playing with a collage app, loading pictures. I noticed the similar shapes between a balloon and my daughter's head, I combined the two and that’s how it all began. From there, I just started looking around for other things I could combine. And the rest is history" - the artist told Bored Panda about how everything started.

The artist admits that at first he used the iPhone to capture photos and the PicFrame app to create a collage, however, now he has a professional camera and uses Photoshop. What began a small side project just for fun has become a wonderful obsession. And we can totally see it from the quality of his collages!

My facial expression after I carjacked my brother’s Flinstones car when I was a toddler. Mom didn’t know whether to laugh or yell at me for stealing his toy.
