A Celebration of Individuality


I’m working on a series of cloning projects inspired by Anthony Goicolea’s “You And What Army”. His work as a digital artist was the first to truly affect me, way back in my very first Photoshop class in high school. I love his injections of humor and his creativity of composition. Shown above is some experimentation I have done with this theme, which I just remembered I still owe my brother some Chipotle for agreeing to model for me.

I recently adopted a new technique with regards to cutting people out. For years I meticulously stewed over Photoshop’s magnetic lasso tool, but often was unable to avoid that “cut out” look. Lately I have been using the quick selection tool:


I like to zoom in and really take my time when defining the area. Once I’m satisfied with my selection, still keeping the marching ants on, I hit “Refine Edge” in order to really sure up my perimeters. It allows for a much more natural look. It comes in handy when attempting to “naturally” place someone into a new environment.

I’ll post more of my clone projects soon. In addition, they are featured in my soon to be released PORTFOLIO! I’m very excited for all the big things coming.
