Ink Blot Art

I've been paddling around in the placid art 'lagoon' of the internet today. I came across these colour blots with corresponding finished renderings of what the artist saw in the blot. Fortunately the artist was able to draw. I imagined what I saw in the blot and what I would draw if I were given these blots. Assuming I could draw. Which I can't. These pics were interesting because none of the artist's finished works resembled anything I saw in the original ink blot. It really punches home how our perspective is unique and art is subjective. The artist's name is L Filipe dos Santos from Viseu, Portugal. Here is a brief profile and more of Mr. dos Santos's work.

What do you see when you look at the blots? Here is the rest of his examples of the ink blots.

I see a pig monster, a kotex explosion and a salamander.

I see a blue guy with big muscles, a fleur de lis and a clown. What I don't see is a post that I swear you had up yesterday.

Are you fucking with me? Why do these posts keep changing? Am I losing my mind? Feel free to answer one or more of my questions at your leisure :)

I am having issues with blogger. Is it the computer generated percussion video that keeps disappearing? I can't get it to post and stay there, I don't know why.

Yesterday I was having issues getting the finished blot art to post after a "jump". I finally got that worked out and then couldn't post anything else.

I saw a salamander too for the last one. Definitely not two people tied up together!

No, I thought there was another post before the ink blot one, but maybe I'm thinking of another blog. My days are running together
