Interesting: who's channeling whom?

My friend Hira found this on the wall of an examining room at Yale (she's in medical school, becoming a PA).  She had seen it numerous times, but one day realized the characters resembled the ones in my (Jack's) faces drawings series...the faces all similar to mind, and done in the same sort of format--squares on a grid, with each portrait a shoulders-up head shot.  It is a little eerie, but easily explainable when two people who like to draw, but being unschooled, use an approach more closely rooted in comics and folk art than in the studio portrait tradition.  It will look like this (artist unknown--click to enlarge):
