I'm a person who tends to stay with a limited palate of photographic techniques. I like straight photography with some strong graphic design. I use some graphic techniques, but I try not to just throw everything in the book at a picture. Lately, I've been doing a lot of car shots because I was lucky enough to be taught about cars from one of top three car photographers in the world, and then I got the work for the other two.

I'm not a car fanatic. They are sculptures to me, horsepower, handling and associated driver stuff has never been on my mind. Today I decided I needed to get out of what has become a rut, so I decided to create a psychedelic poster from the 60's and the early 70's.

John Travolta was an icon of that era. He played an air head stud muffin, who was what they called back, a chick magnet named Vinnie Barbarino in a series called, "Welcome back Kotter." I picked this shot I took of him to plug his first movie, the horror classic, "Carrie."

I picked this head shot that has made the young women my wife works with at Starbucks go a little crazy. I used most of the posterization effects from that period, added a few from now. I think it came out well, and got my interest in different styles in photography.

I would love to see the original, not becauseI don't like this version, I do, very much, but because was one of my favourite objects of lust, precisely because of the intensity of gaze that you have captured so brilliantly here.

The processing here is very clever and effective. Do tell, how did you achieve it?

I'm with you on cars. To my mind there are only two kinds - trouble free and troublesome!
