Hi, I've asked you about animating before, but now I wanted to ask you something different. So, how long were you taking art classes for? I'm in my fourth year of art in high school, I was wondering how many years you took before you got your career. I mean, I know I want to do something with art but I'm always second guessing. It seems like I've been doing art forever, not saying that's a bad thing. Anyway, please try to answer this when you can! Quizzically yours, - Etch

Hi there!

Let’s face it, it was only a matter of time before my friend Amy and I tackled ectoplasm photos. This was the perfect excuse to experiment with drippy smoke effects and old-school aesthetics – two things we’d been itching to take a crack at.

We shook our heads with fast shutter speeds and shot dye drops in water against background mattes to achieve physical effects; there’s no computer generated imagery in these pictures, just basic compositing of real pictures.

Peter and Amy are cool
