    It really is, lol!

    But what's missing is the self portrait when not under the influence of anything for comparison.

    Overall, he is a talented artist, if not too bright. I mean I wouldn't put most of that crap in my body for anything! :rolleyes:

    There is no way Absinth would be that bad. If abilify were that bad, they probably wouldn't approve it. And mushrooms are supposed to be that good? YEAH RIGHT!

    I think this is a fraud!

    The second drawing down looks like "Chunk's" new friend from the movie "Goonies".

    I wonder if it talked to him when he was drawing it.

    Everything talks to you under the influence of shrooms.

    Even the bloody cows...

    The first time I saw this I was blown away by the differences in what he drew each time and his own perception of himself. Even the amount of force used to apply the media to the page. It really makes you think what they do to your brain.

    That, and it would be helpful to know if he was trying to draw a realistic picture or interpretive (trying to stylize the drawing). That could produce two very different outcomes.

    If he was trying to make a realistic drawing of himself each time, then some of those mental conditions produced by the drugs are even scarier.

    You must be on drugs to think legal drugs automatically have less harmful side effects than illegal drugs.

    That is for sure!

    I can't imagine what he might do if he wasn't using art for the expression of the "high"!

    He's nuts for taking drugs for the sake of art. Just read the literature the drug store includes on commonly prescribed antibiotics that shows any number of problems that can occur. It's enough to make you not want to even take that when your doctor says you need it.

    The guy is taking an awful chance, perhaps he has no real imagination and should be doing something else instead.

    Some of the world's greatest Artists, Writers, Musicians, and Playwrights have been tortured souls who took solace in "the stuff that dreams are made of"...

    So much so, it would be hard to imagine some of their works without it...

    I'd hate to think that "every drug known to man" is cocaine, bath salts, absinth, Abilify, and mushrooms.

    I could think of worse reasons for taking drugs.

    I still can't condone drugs for other than a doctor prescribing as necessary, regardless of beautiful music or artwork, etc. It's just stupid to do that to your body. It's still wrong to do something wrong so that you get the result you want.
