Extractionism is the art of Recognizing Resemblances and then Extracting and Presenting them. It is the technique I employed when I discovered the Old Man in the Peanut and is the process I use to find images in the random patterns of scribbles and drips. Submit your scribble to have a one of a kind work of art where you are co-creator.

Ismael Cavazos is an artist hailing from Austin Texas since 1994. Cavazos' unique way of seeing the world began with seeing images in clouds. Introduced to the Scribble Technique early in his art career, he believed the images he was finding were a kind of super power - the result of much comic book reading. The year was 1988 and at least a half dozen drawings exist from this period. Contributing to the rich history of the Scribble, Ismael went on to innovate in the field, creating a vocabulary where there was none. Unlike tea leaf reading which has a name (Tasseography), the reading of scribbles had no title, simply a descriptive - the scribble technique. Thus, Scribblism was created: the art and practice of the scribble - and now that there was a name for the piece of pie of art he was working within, the artist realized there was no meta-label for the pie - thus was born Extractionism.

This exciting new terminology, along with an update to Alexander Cozens' 'The Cozens Method' called appropriately, The Cavazos Method, has created a new pair of glasses through which to see the world. The theme that has risen is one that concentrates on resemblances, their recognition and subsequent utilization; with the most exciting example being the Old Man in the Peanut.

I. C. Photography is from the same creative eye that brought you Scribblism and The Old Man in the Peanut!
