The cold reader exploits that the human mind is a whiz at making senses of information, shaping faces out of leaves, finding religious icons on pieces of toast, and letting us believe general sentences and uncertain questions add up to prophesy.  ~Thomm Quackenbush


Facial Pareidolia & Snarky Galactics

I live with facial pareidolia, Google it.  This is why all I create has faces.

I love creating non traditional humanoid faces using any medium I can, beginning in 2017 I have devoted to creating kaleidoscopic humanoids within images based off of both fractal prints, random patterns generated using Tapet and reworks based on images of some of my favorite artist friends. Oh yes and sometimes the base image I process using Google’s Deep Blue AI – Dream Deeply for added intensity and awesomeness.

This video presents the total of 183 unique 24″ x 42″ Digital Prints (I prefer prints on Glass) I created in the first 6 months of 2017. The Kaleidoscopic Humanoids collection so far are broken down into 13 series each with their own unique sense and flare.

The series are identified by a unique number associated with the unfolding point when my snarky galactic friends begged to be created in image. The series numbers are 1717. 11917, 13117, 2117, 3217, 3317, 31317, 32217, 32517, 4217, 42217, 52617, 61117.

Full resolution print downloads are available at for you to use.

Additional PS, Apophysis settings and source images available upon request.

Please view this video on your largest screen in fullscreen mode (up to full UHD 4k) whenever possible, since many times you will find a multitude of faces in each individual print from different head tilts or just shifting your gaze. I create my work for you to explore and then explore again and be amazed.

So floss your brain, expand your perceptions and have fun playing with me and my snarky Galactic friends I have unfolded for you to see.

Faces in Faces within Faces!
