These irresistible patterns and illustrations drawn on found photos are by Brooklyn artist Alana Dee Haynes. I think we all have drawn a mustache or two on a glossy fashion mag, but Haynes shows us how it’s really done!
In an interview Haynes says:
“Everyone has a certain way they see the world. Some things jump out at people, while others pass them by. I see faces and patterns everywhere. When I look at people, I connect their beauty marks, and find faces in their knuckle lines. It’s just the way I live. So, naturally, I see these things in photographs too. It is not synesthesia, but it is a similar way of viewing multiple layers in things. I think other people must feel this way as well, and that is why it feels right and relatable to see images this way.” (via Juxtapose)
