About a month ago I met Joel Bear in Los Angeles. Soon after I began following his work on instagram and noticed his love for harsh lighting and dark shadows. His style is very similar to mine but in a different context. I reached out to him weeks later to see if he had any interest of a collaboration. That collaboration consisted of taking three of his photos and creating my own illustrative interpretation. Those photos and illustrations are side by side below. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did creating them.
