Composites of literary characters

Hazel Motes, Wise Blood by Flannery O'Connor

Have you seen this eery tumblr page? Brian Joseph Davis combines police composite sketch software and descriptions of characters from literature to create these rather evocative images. Hypothetically, it’s the closest we can come to seeing the characters as the authors do.

Don’t you get the feeling that any one of these characters could be serial killers? Is that the police composite software coming into it or a reflection on the author?
