Heheh crazy. That's not your standard method is it? Or is it a bit of a joke/one off?

Is there any reason why you use random photos to create your art?

They always look awesome even if it doesn't make sense to me :)

for all those who don't understand... you would have to watch how he creates his work. Watch one of his tutorial vids, then you will understand. He has this really cool work flow where he starts with an image, then starts morphing it, cutting it up, moving it around, paining on top of it, then more morphing etc. The goal is to be random and create "happy accidents" (as Bob Ross used to say)... then you can slowly find shapes and images within the chaos that you can develop further. When he starts, he doesn't know what he's going to paint. What a free way to paint, I love it. There are a few other artists that do a similar approach such as Andrew (Android) Jones, Tarrzan [link] etc. and I'm giving it a shot too! [link]
