You may have seen his work before but you’ve never seen anything like it that is quite so polished. Swedish photographer Erik Johansson‘s photo manipulations are at a level that few can achieve.

Illustrator Patrick Seymour has taken line art to the next level. His vast portfolio covers everything from portraits to typefaces, each more impressive than the last.
