Artist Creates Self-Portraits On Different Drugs, And The Results Are Insane (Photos)
Envision

In what could be considered the craziest/most creative drug experiment ever, artist Bryan Lewis Saunders pushed himself to the limit when he decided to take a different drug every day for a few weeks.

Not only was he not sober, but he also drew a self-portrait of himself while under the influence of these drugs each day. Now of course, we wouldn’t ever suggest trying this at home, and we’re quite frankly not sure how this guy was even able to survive this.

After all, there’s no doubt that this takes a toll on your body. From nicotine gum, to cocaine, to Zoloft, to PCP, Saunders did it all.

The working world and, more specifically, our older coworkers, do not recognize our true potential because they view us […]
