Chinese artist and student of chemical engineering Gaikuo-Captain combines Manga artistry and photo manipulation to create awesome images that depict himself, armed only with his trusty drawing pen, interacting with his inked creations. According to GeekTyrant, this project began simply to make a personal profile photo, but evolved into the epic series where comic book characters appear to have crossed over into our own world.
