student photo illustration work
If you have a moment, check out these fun illustrations by some of my students. These guys had the equivalent of 4 days to learn some pretty sophisticated Photoshop compositing techniques and to then apply them to editorial and advertising concepts. As these demonstrate, they already have the vivid imaginations necessary to eventually take these skills much further.
Great Stuff there!
I much prefer your "Photo-Illustration" Term to what some Term "Photo-Art" or an even less becoming Term "Phart".
