    This is really crazy. My art looks very similar to his on klonopin.. so not sure what that's saying about Klonopin.

    Wow, and this dude is still alive? What did he do? One drug per week and then allow himself to recover? Also, now we all know to stay away from bath salts and morphine. Those were especially creepy. (Actually, the whole thing is a bit depressing to me.)

      Worse - one drug every day. The last few portraits are in hospital environments it looks like, ending on 'unknown dosage in hospital'. Not so sure if he's still alive. Morbid, but nevertheless incredibly fascinating.

    crazy. His style is so disparate for each portrait, which is telling about how different drugs affect the brain. I like the pot brownies one the best.

    This is amazing. Though it is kind of hard to know where the line of self awareness is in these. This series of self portraits a guy did over the duration of an acid trip in a government study from the 50s seems to give more insight into the changing brain states: I've always loved looking at these.
