It has been quite a long time since I posted about some nice photo manipulation. I used to spend quite a long time looking for references and also practicing my skills in Photoshop and some 3D tools. Anyways, it's always good to bring back good memories and also to feature some inspiring work like the Africa | Mitsubishi by Pict Estúdio. It can happen by fate or by chance, that this magazine falls into the hands of a person who is looking for a different Image Production Studio and actually able to really make a difference. A Studio who can turn lemons into lemonade; challenges into opportunities; a partner to meet the challenges out there, exploring all the opportunities that are right here.

Now these cracked me up! I was taking a good look at Rodney Pike's work, an awesome set of celebrity photo-manip caricatures, but a bunch of his pieces caught my attention: Mr. Bean inserted in traditional paintings.

Alberto Seveso never ceases to impress us. I remember back in 2005/2006 when he shocked everyone with his style called “sperm shaping.” We featured an interview with him almost 4 years go here on Abduzeedo where he talks a little bit more about that. After that he became a super recognize illustrator and designer with worked feature in popular magazines and in the Adobe Photoshop CS6 launch. Today we feature some of his new work, still incredible and unique. Alberto's passion for graphic arts started in the 90s, he was really fascinated from the graphic of skate decks and the cover of music CD of metal bands. From that passion her started to think about how reproduce that kind of artwork.

Photoshop is a way to free your imagination and here you can take a look inside the mind of Martin Grohs. Each piece has it's own world of creativity and execution into something real within your eyes. Enjoy! In 2007 I've started with the digital retouching. At the beginning I have corrected merely a pair of faults. But with the time I found more and more enthusiasm to work and to change more. With the time I have more and more intensively dealt with the manipulation and have learned to love it. So I have slipped to this area. But meanwhile I leave it no longer only at simple picture manipulations, but I always try to visualize and to create more interesting, unique and re-recognizable ideas. Here one small insight into my thoughts and their putting into action. I hope you like them... For more from Martin Grohs visit martin-grohs.com and behance.net/grohsARTig.
