Bryan Saunders is on drugs

If you haven’t seen the buzz about Saunders’ DRUGS series, you have to check this out. The Washington DC based artist has been drawing a self portrait every day for the last 17 years. For his DRUGS series of portraits, the artist took an assortment of illegal as well as prescribed drugs, plus some industrial and household chemicals, and continued with his portraits while under the influence – everything from Shrooms, PCP and Abilify to Bath Salts, huffing lighter fluid, and Dilaudid to IVs of Hyrdrocodone. The collection is beautiful and, occasionally, more than slightly disturbing.
