It’s difficult to book celebrities and models to do photo shoots. They have busy schedules, and besides, it's not like they're going to go out of their way for a few snaps with a stranger. So what's a hardcore fan to do? Graphic artist Edgar Torres Jr. found an answer to this lonely philosophical question.

In a series of amusing edited photos trending right now on Facebook, Edgar hilariously poses with several notable women like Maine Mendoza, Erich Gonzales, Anne Curtis, and others. What’s amazing about his work is that you won't be able to tell at first glance that he just photoshopped himself into the images. That is, until, you stare at them really hard. People on social media have nothing but praise for these rib-tickling photos.

Edgar is an artist based in Santa Cruz, Laguna. He has a love for graphic design, TV shows, movies, and anything related to entertainment. And because of his background (illustrations, posters, ads), he applied his "kakulitan sa utak" into this playful hobby of his.

After graduating from AMA Computer College, the artist had the idea of editing himself into photos with his celebrity crushes (that would otherwise not pose in a photo shoot with him—we wonder why?).

“Since mahilig din naman ako dun, at di naman pwede na makita ko sila in person atUy, pa-pic naman po tayo’ any time, in-edit ko na lang sarili ko kasama sila. Instant!”

It takes Edgar two hours—or even longer if he obsesses over it—to do just the photo editing itself. “Depende din po kasi sa theme or gag na gusto kong gawin dun sa original nilang picture,” Edgar says. “Minsan tapos ko na yung editing pero biglang may magpapop-up sa ‘kin na bagong idea kaya kailangan ko i-re-edit yung pic.”

He says he just Googles the subject he wants to be "in a scene with" until he finds a photo that's apt and would draw laughs. “Gagayahin ko yung angle nila, yung tama ng ilaw, at mag-pose ng kung anong gusto kong gawin‘Pag kuntento na ako sa kuha ko, isasalang ko na sila sa computer,” he adds.

Aside from the crazy edits he puts himself in, he also has fun making himself a cast member of some local movies and posters. This guy is just an unreachable mega star in his own right.

He also has some hilarious edits of clips from Filipino movies and teleseryes. “Isa sa pinaka na-e-enjoy ko at kailangan ng mas dagdag na effort eh yung pag-gawa ng mga parody videos ng kung ano-anong show.”

Of his love for editing, Edgar says, “Masaya ako sa pag-e-edit at the same time napapatawa ko din yung mga tao. Napakalawak kasi ng mundo ng photo and video editing—lahat kaya mong mapuntahan, lahat kaya mong gawin.”

And when asked what this FAMAS-worthy actor plans to pursue next, he had these words for us: “Feeling ko marami pa akong makaka-eksenang mga artista in the future.”
