Check out these amazing kaleidoscopic pattern elements Cassandra C. Jones makes from photographs of people and things! This group in particular, called Good Cheer, is entirely composed of cheerleaders. Cassandra says on her website:
Good Cheer is an installation of wallpaper that is composed of snapshot photographs of cheerleaders performing routine stunts that flaunt their briefs. This type of photograph, a young girl in uniform with one leg up in the air, has a duel connotation of family values and pornography all in one image. Good Cheer surrounds the viewer in this paradox of ethical ambiguity.
