I often sketch in coffeehouses, at least I did when I frequented them often.  The denizens of the coffeehouses then often become the subject of what I draw. I'm rarely a quick enough draw to capture them accurately. I don't know what was different on this day, but I had a ballpoint and the urge to capture haircuts and headgear. Then I began to doodle inspired by a face I saw in a magazine made up of letters. I didn't have a clear idea of what word I was drawing, so I guess it is just shapes inspired by facial features. You sometimes come up with the most amazing ideas when in coffeehouses.
