I took screenshots of various graphics from the original Super Mario Brothers, modeled them as 3D objects using Lightwave, put together this mushroom scene, and then edited the final render in Photoshop. Mixing the old with the new.
As I hiked to the top of Bromley Mountain in Vermont I approached a fire tower. It was really cold up there. Ice was forming on the sides of trees and the tower itself, breaking off on the steps below… I made a photograph looking straight down at these cubes and straight out at the mountains.
