    Default Artist paints self portraits under influence of different drugs

    Artist Takes Every Drug Known to Man, Draws Self Portraits After Each Use

    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.
    Here are some of the portraits. There's a bunch more that can be found at the link.

    Adderall:




    Bath Salts:




    Pot Brownies :




    Valium:




    Mushrooms:



    Xanax:

    I actually think that's pretty cool.

    Bath salts one is fucking scary though.

    This one has to be my favorite, computer duster.

    the bath salts portrait explains a lot.

    ETA: you have to see all of them, it's really interesting.

    I'd like to see him on coke.

    ^Apparently some sort of opioid? I had to google lots of these. The dilaudid one is freaky, as is the bath salts one. I really like some of these though and the differences between them are really cool. I love how über-detailed the adderall one is.
