About the Art: Road Trip to Tokyo

This is a before & after of my newest art piece called Road Trip to Tokyo. It is on the very surreal Cross Pacific Bridge that connects Portland to Tokyo. This VW bus is taking a 4851 mile road trip... a very surreal road trip.
The final piece was created mainly from 3 other photos that I shot.
1. VW bus on I-5 nearing Seattle
2. Cannon Beach, Oregon 
3. Downtown Portland from Aerial Tram

You can see a lot more on my site.

1927 T-Bucket Rat Rod on the Pacific Coast at Sunset

This 1927 T-Bucket Rat Rod was hand built and resides somewhere near Salem Oregon. When I shot this, it was in a gas station parking lot.... I made it cruising in a slightly surreal Pacific coast setting, along with little people trying to watch the sunset, which is also a photo that I shot another time. 
The little people are the surreal part.

Collage of my newest art

My digital art starts out as a photograph that I shoot, then is transformed into a piece of art as I repaint it with light, color, textures and filters adding many layers to the photograph and then tweaking it a little more… to finally become surreal Portland Digital Art.
