Steve wanted to appear as if he were levitating while also levitating a magical orb. I took a photo of Steve, then a quick Google Images search and found this collection of odd images including Steven's spirit animals.
Photoshop Composite and Masking
This found image composite of minarets with flying saucers and creatures such as the sand shark create a fantasy where Steve has the skill to multi-levitate. This combination of images became the artwork for The Tragic Clowns.
