Recently, San-Francisco based graphic designer Brian Pollett, aka Pixel-Pusha, consumed different drugs for 20 days and created art around a human face. He “wanted to create opportunities to educate, whether related to psychedelics or art.” Pollett experimented with drugs like cocaine, LSD, Mushrooms, Ketamine and more.

Imagine the past, future, and linear time are gone,” Brian explained. “You can just focus on your existence in the present. The idea of tomorrow is laughable. I can create art without concern of outsider judgment, without over analyzing my process, and intuitively enjoy creating the most honest work.

Similarly, artist Brian Lewis Saunders decided in 1995 to make a self portrait every single day and a lot of these were done under the influence of drugs. For 30-40 days straight he took different forms of mind-altering substances and made self portraits

From chemicals like cocaine and crystal meth, to herbal drugs like cannabis and marijuana, Saunders experimented with a lot of drugs and even had to be hospitalized during this experiment.

The graphic and hand done images are all unique but if you look closely you’ll see resemblances in the ones done while on the same drug. Each unique drug induces a different feeling in a person. We aren’t promoting drug usage in any way and have even explored the harsh reality of drug usage at music festivals. However, there’s no denying that quite a percentage of the population does dabble in drugs and with these artists experimenting so openly, we are becoming more aware of the effects on the human mind.
