Pareidolia Art

This is kind of along the lines of my previous post, but worded better.
Many of you have asked me where I get inspiration for my artwork so here you are. Since I was five years old i'd find myself outlining the faces, and designs with my finger in inanimate objects. It has always driven me nuts that these faces would stare at me from the walls- never to be brought to life. One night I was sketching in my basement when the inspiration hit me that I would bring them life. So since then i've been sketching from photographs the designs in inanimate objects that could be interpreted as a living being. I have stored the images on my iPod or taken with an old Polaroid which I use to basis my drawing on when I sketch.
