In his project, famous celebrities are photoshopped so it looks like they’re hanging out with their younger selves.
I always tell everybody that with only 30 minutes of practice a day you can become a master at Photoshop, all you need to be is consistent. And I honestly believe that. Most people will probably put more time in than that, I know I did for sure! But as a bare minimum, 30 mins a day would still work.

For those of you who don’t know who Joel Robison is, kindly crawl out from under your rock and check out his work. (Is there internet under your rock? HOW ARE YOU EVEN READING THIS!?!?) … Joel is an absolute POWERHOUSE of talent, creativity, imagination, encouragement and he is just an all around super nice guy.
