The (un)Dead Doppelgängers!

I chose the assignment “We’re the Real Life Brady Bunch” and gave it an apocalyptic/supernatural twist.

The family here is everyone but me who lives in our suite (rooms 210 and 212). BUT, something strange has happened: there are doppelgängers of ourselves coming after us! Not only that, but they’re undead too!



I made this while watching the opening ceremonies of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics (which were GORGEOUS and AMAZING), and it was so much fun! Getting my suite together to take these photos also made for a hilarious Friday-night event. And I HAD to replace myself with my best friend, Ron Swonsowl (who, as you may or may not know, can open portals to mirror dimensions) because he just BEGGED me to be included.
I knew I wanted to put in a fourth-wall-breaking element and have the people (and owl) in the panels interact, and with that I attempted to make a 3-D effect by having the doppelgängers crossing into the gutters (spaces between the pictures). The overall editing process took a while, using a whole hod-podge of layers and color modifiers and drawing tools, but I am very proud of the end result!

  1. I am not even kidding when I say that I am obsessed with this post. I love your idea and how you were able to insert a narrative into your image. I find the 3D effect amazingly well done. Good job!

    1. Thank you so much! It’s hard for me to write just plain narrative about my work and not include any of the stories I see emerging from it.
