Is that a gigantic polar bear attacking San Francisco?! Fear not citizens, it’s merely a happy bear looking for a back rub… and using the Transamerica Pyramid for help.

Hombre McSteez (aka Marty Cooper) is dreaming up bizarrely fantastic scenarios and bringing them to the real world using just transparencies, white-out, a good old Sharpie and forced perspective. After doodling his work on the clear sheet, he holds it up and photographs it interacting with the scene behind. Each piece is made on the spot, perfectly matching situation – be it a monstrous day on the putting green or an afternoon grabbing tasty sushi (that seems to keep running away).

Her friends and co-workers joined in, matching each of their bodies more or less perfectly with those on the books – everything from faces and eyeballs, to punching fists and flexing muscle men. It was addictive.

What if Hipster Brands Went Mainstream?

Some brands just get copied, others just get the munchies, but these brands have decided to go mainstream. It’s a rough road to take in our designer coffee, typography loving hip culture, but somebody had to do it.
