Ad Bugg by AlexRuizArt Ad Bugg by AlexRuizArt
So this is another one of those insane digital photo-collage thingies...which took waaay to long to do of course! Basically it's the idea that advertising is somewhat of a monster all around us, and most of the time we pay no attention.
The Bug was built from pieces from many photos, but the bg is one photo.... I'm not entirely done, because I wanted to make it into a postcard....but I don't know which country it's in and I'm hoping you guys might be able to help me out with that! Thanks for looking:)

This is probably too late to say, but the background really reminds me of Changsha in the Hunan province of China, since that hotel sign looks a lot like the sign of the hotel I stayed in before. I could be mistaken though, since the signs are all so similar...-__-

This is so clever. I love your description of it.

I'd say this is somewhere in Asia. Not because giant monsters' usual habitat is Tokyo or somewhere like it, but because all the people in the picture are Asian. Simply. :D

Wow that's really cool. Both the picture and conceptwise.

If I had to guess, I'd say it was in taiwan or japan. It's obviously an asian country.

Anyway, good job!

most surely somewhere in Hong Kong or China. Taiwan would also be an option. Most surely not Japan...

I really love the bug thing, the only thing that bothers me is the photo-people. If they were just loose paint dabs with same colours they would fit in better with the rest.
