Artist completes a unsettling series of self-portraits on different types of drugs

In a massive artistic experiment, Bryan Lewis Saunders created a series of self-portraits while on different drugs. For many artists, mind altering substances are not foreign to the creative process, but in this experiment, Saunders tests how different substances alter his work and his reality.

In the artist’s words: “After experiencing drastic changes in my environment, I looked for other experiences that might profoundly affect my perception of 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.”

 We don’t suggest that you try this one at home, folks.
