"SaturnRise" : 12/25/04
I just sort of threw this together using a photo from Cassini and a castle from Webshots.

"Disneyland at Christmas" :12/22/04 Two pieces. One was created using a photo of twilight clouds overlaid on a photo of Disneyland from a video capture.

"EarthMother" :2/1/04 This is not a composite "per se". I "drew" and "painted" the portrait, based on a photograph, and composited it into a photograph the subject took. It isn't finished, either, and took about two hours to "draw".

"Tweaked Graffitti" :Another composite using some of the same elements in "Cheerleaders."

Vampboopirella, a Betty Boop composite 2003Robot Gal on Parade

"Breck 2" (Camel) and "BreckPorn" :also composited in 2002. Here are some of the images I worked over for the Advertising section of The Cultural Blender site.

"Girls of Summer" composited in 2002.I know this one got me thrown out of Webshots. It's their background, but I actually "drew" Betty on a Wacom Artpad, so I signed the piece. I noted that I was using copyrighted cartoons on the site, but it wasn't enough. My composite art got a lot of hits too!

"Stitch Presley " composited sometime in 2002. Here I am skewering two copyrighted icons. This may have been one or the composites on my Webshots cartoon gallery when they shut it down. This was done rather quickly, and isn't as inspirational as the thought I had before I actually "created" it.

"RobotGal on Parade" composited sometime in 2002 I loved the robot image which might be something from an Olivia collectible card, or a similar artist. Porn starlet face, and fruit with nipples. There is a definite theme running through some of these composites.

"EdenFractal" composited sometime in 2002 This image is comprised of a porn starlet, fruit, eyes, and a fractal background I got off of a community site at Webshots.

"VerseImage1" composited 4/14/02 Another Anfy Applet, with music from "The Wizard of Oz", and a "poem" I composed especially for the constraints of the program. The image of the waterfall is from Webshots.

"CloudLake" composited 4/12/02 This composite uses Java applets developed by Anfy, and can only be showcased on it's own web page..

"FaceJune" composited 6/02, is more of a "drawing" than a composite..

"SkullsForSale" composited 8/3/01 (exhibit on loan. removed temporarily.) This is, sadly, another pretty sick piece of sh*t if you look at it one way.....but then again....what constitutes art? Good taste?

"Breastmen" composited 7/7/01 Be warned. This is not a kid-friendly piece of art. It is rated "R", and will most likely give people nightmares. But I want to show that I have a rather sick sense of humor, as well.

"HomesteadLemmings" composited 7/7/01 This is inspired by the messages being placed on the boards at Homestead.

"MoonAndCanyon" composited in late 2000 This is one of the first things I composited.

"MikeEyesGuy" composited 4/19/00 I'm finding examples of computer compositing I forgot I had created and am posting links to the works here as I find them. This isn't too "artistic" but exists in my database, so I am putting it up here.
