    This is all kinds of cool, and everything your mother told you not to do. Bryan Lewis Saunders is an artist from Washington D.C., not just any artist though. Saunders prefers to take a more unconventional approach to his artwork.
    Arguably his most interesting project, entitled DRUGS is described as follows:
    “After experiencing drastic changes in my environment, I looked for other experiences that might profoundly affect my perception of the self. So I devised another experiment where everyday I took a different drug and drew myself under the influence. Within weeks I became lethargic and suffered mild brain damage. I am still conducting this experiment but over greater lapses of time. I only take drugs that are given to me.”
    Below, you can view a collection of portraits Saunders drew while under the influence of various substances ranging from cocaine, to marijuana, to DMT. Each portrait is an astonishing look into the mind of someone tweaked out on drugs, something that your eyes will surely appreciate.

    That was pretty interesting, indeed. Would be interesting to see a comparison to how he does his self portrait while sober.

    $#@! that is amazing!!!!!! I love it. My favorites are DMT and Risperdol. LOL DMT was just like a $#@!ing half circle and he probably couldnt continue drawing because he was wiping his brains off the wall for that one. WIN

    Taking drugs one by one is not going to kill you, mixing drugs and/or taking large quantities is how people die.

    Why do people think you will automatically become braindead if you take many different types of drugs in a controlled manner? Druggies give science a bad name.

    Guys you need to read up on Sasha Shulgin. He was a professor of biochemistry, he single handedly developed over 200 of his own psychedelic drugs that the world has never seen before at the time. A lot of these drugs are todays modern designer drugs such as Ecstasy, 2-CB and GHB. He designed, synthesized and tested on himself every single drug he created. He is 87 years old and still gives lectures at MIT on biochemistry and the science behind how the brain relates to the mind (how chemicals make you think). His brain is fine, he is fine, he is brilliant.

    His studies on psychedelics is important for the treatment of a lot of mental diseases that we currently dont understand.

    Drugs dont kill you, stupid people that take drugs kill you.

    It's like a gun, a gun is a neutral device that has a narrow band of usage. You deviate from that narrow band and you can die. Same with drugs, you can use the drug within the band of acceptable usages, deviate from that (assuming you are educated about the drugs) and you can die. So educate yourself about a drug before taking it. Unfortunately nobody is really educated about drugs and they take 5x the dose and mix it with alcohol and other chemicals and wonder why they had a stroke at 25.

    Yes drugs are dangerous, but so are knives, and we all know that the sharp edge of the knife points away from you when cutting. But people too stupid to know not to mix xanax and cocaine.

    wow, that's quite a trip.

    not to thread-jack, but there was an american street artist named Basquiat who was basically a homeless guy who painted all over NYC. He did have a drug habit and even after becoming recognized by the art community and earning thousands for his works, in the end it was his habit that got the better of him. There's a great biopic on his life with Benecio del Toro that I highly recommend.
