Artist Bryan Lewis Saunders has this interesting project where he will attempt a self-portrait under the influence of a different drug. Some are totally awesome, vivid, captivating -- completely reflecting on the artist's incredible abilities. Others are downright scary and are going to keep me up all night.

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.
