Layered Manipulation

These images by Swedish artist Johan Thörnqvist are one of the most interesting photo-manipulation series I have seen yet! Using a graphics tablet and Photoshop; he creates surreal, dream-like worlds by layering illustration over photograph. Although his cartoon renditions are great; I feel the detailed, multidimensional cityscapes drawn in unexpected contexts and scales are his more exemplary works. I especially love the whimsy and pastel color stories of the last three.
