The way it works is called "apophenia". That´s a term used by psychologists to describe the mind´s will to construct meaning, order and forms even from chaotic structures - just like seeing faces in the clouds.
At first paper is prepared with random coffee, tea and juice drippings.
The "found" motifs are extracted and details are worked out using colored ink.

I love your work hoploid. The forms are very well defined, but abstract in a way that tells a very unique visual story. All your pieces are so powerful!
