Klecksography is the art of making images from inkblots. The work was pioneered by Justinus Kerner, who included klecksographs in his books of poetry.

The original images shown below are pretty grotesque, I like them, they remind me of older children’s stories when everything was darker and seemed to revolve around always needing food and catching the plague. This is the first I had heard of this type of art, I have seen it around in different forms but the originals are defiantly best.
