And so, the drawings that arise from this artist are complimented by some pretty entertaining commentary and and some seriously wild drawings. This is my personal favorite:
Of course, though, with wild experiences comes heavy risk, and that's what drugs are in general -- a risk, to yourself, to others, to your health. And so it's better not to play with fire when you're covered in gasoline (odd metaphor, but it works).
Being that I'm somewhat of an artistic fellow, I can appreciate the fine strokes that people can put on a canvas in front of them... but sometimes, the best stuff that arises are the things that are unexpected, and completely accidental. While the drugging of this man was intentional, to see what would happen, the results are a complete and total deviation from the norm. Can you imagine seeing life like this all the time?! My goodness.
On a completely different note, read an article today about a man who got mugged and then ended up being able to do spectacular mathematical drawings because of the brain damage in his head. Apparently the mathematical and mental imagery parts of his brain attempted to make up the slack for the damaged parts. His drawings remind me of something my sister had as a kid called a Spirograph I believe... and his art is equally as impressive as drug-induced artwork dude. So check that out if you like, and read the full story.
Art is so cool. The opportunities are endless, and things can be at complete opposite ends of the spectrum -- and yet still be just as appealing to the eye. Incredible.
