I love making surrealistic portraits using props, practical effects, and illusions. Since I didn’t want to resort to Photoshop to create my images, I knew that I would have to get physical and build my own stage.

Since I knew I wouldn’t be able to afford my own studio space until I had my feet on the ground, my parents lent me their garage space to use as my dedicated studio. The following images were all created in that small, crowded, too-hot-in-the-summer, too-cold-in-the-winter, Michigan garage!

Ohhh, this really got me for a bit. The chalk lines in the front (and on the sides) aren't chalk, but string or something like it - probably more solid. Maybe one of those 3d printer doodle pens? Anyway, nicely done!

Ok, this is very cool, but that smoke in the last pic is NO WAY the same as the first two pics XD
