This photomanipulation was inspired by a long time love of toy cars and my wife’s beautiful smile.

Canon 7D, photographing the normal smile then each car top down individually, removing teeth and inserting each car individually via layering. Gaussian blur was added as cars ventured toward the back of the mouth. Edited in Photoshop Elements and colored/lit in Lightroom.

I am self taught, with an imagination that will not stop. I started drawing as a kid, and dabbled with correspondence art school but never took art in high school or college because I felt it might constrain me. I was wrong, but no crying over spilled milk.
