You’ve heard of “hidden Mickeys?” Well, this is kinda like that. Sometimes I see figures or faces or monsters in everyday objects and want to bring them to life. No, it’s not a psychosis; rather, I like to think of it as creativity. I won’t tell you my shrink’s opinion on the matter.
Some of these figures are, I think, fairly obvious once I point them out. Others, well, perhaps not so much. Below are a couple examples of figures that I decided to breathe life into.
I found this little guy lurking in the wallpaper of my father-in-law’s bathroom. As you can see from the wallpaper photo below, he didn’t need too much creative translation to turn him into Papel, Spirit of the Bathroom.
What does it say that both these examples were found in bathrooms? Hmm…
Anyway, I found this mischievous fellow lurking in the tile of my own bathroom shower. After seeing him there for some months, I decided it was time to let him out as well.
