25 self-portraits drawn on 25 different drugs

In Entertainment by Ned Hepburn / September 20, 2012

Bryan Lewis Saunders is an artist from Washington DC who has drawn over 8,000 self portraits – one for every
day of the last 21 years – and has taken a shitload of drugs in that time, too. Some of those self-portraits have been drawn while under the influence of different drugs, the results of which are pretty fantastic. Not unlike the spiderwebs made by spiders under the influence, it is extremely interesting to see what different drugs do to one’s creativity.
