Seeing Faces

-By Dan dos Santos

I typically hold a rag in my left hand whenever I'm painting. When I clean my brush, I have a habit of 'pinching' the paint off. The result is usually a very symmetrical, 'Rorschach' type image. Quite often these random marks appear like faces to me... especially when I haven't been using the rag very long.

Over the past few months, I've taken shots of some of my favorites.

An elvish car salesman...

A rabbit prostitute...

Adrien Brody...
