Artist Takes Every Drug Known to Man, Draws Self Portraits After Each Use

Artist Takes Every Drug Known to Man, Draws Self Portraits After Each Use
This is all kinds of cool, and everything your mother told you not to do. Bryan Lewis Saunders is an artist from Washington D.C., not just any artist though. Saunders prefers to take a more unconventional approach to his artwork. Arguably his most interesting project, entitled DRUGS is described as follows: Below, you can view a collection of portraits Saunders drew while under the influence of various substances ranging from cocaine, to marijuana, to DMT. Each portrait is an astonishing look into the mind of someone tweaked out on drugs, something that your eyes will surely appreciate.

Richard Dadd: Masterpieces of the asylum - Features - Art So when he started behaving erratically in the last leg of the 10-month trip, his increasingly bizarre behaviour and the outlandish assertion that he was acting under the influence of the Egyptian god Osiris was dismissed as an acute case of sunstroke. We now know it was the start of delusional episodes and psychotic behaviour that culminated in murder on 29 August 1843, when he lured his father, Robert Dadd, to a park in Kent, and stabbed him to death. He fled by boat to France, in such a confused and manic state that he later said he was on his way to assassinate Ferdinand I, Emperor of Austria. Videos Straight-away I was reminded of Jake Fried, but only in materials/process. It’s clear that Emanuele is also intuitively fleshing out the movement frame-by-frame as he goes but his work is unique in that there’s no figurative elements to recognize; only abstract geometry and form that, when quilted together, comes across as both familiar and foreign. I’m reminded of the notebooks I used to fill with random scribbles while bored out of my mind in high school: I’d start with a stray line or a random shape and then try to make sense of it with the remaining paper, as if the choatic mess left by my pen was what I had intended to create from the beginning.

Sculpture in the Gibbs Farm Source: link Gibbs Farm is an unusual setting for a sculpture collection. The North Auckland property is dominated by the Kaipara Harbour, the largest harbour in the Southern hemisphere. Walking the land visitors can appreciate how each artist has come to terms in their own way with the gravitational pull that is exerted on everything as the mountains roll into hills and slide into gullies and slope down towards the wide flat expanse of the Kaipara harbour. Best stain removing products and cleaning tips (Photo: Dana Gallagher) How to vanquish the stains that are taking over every surface in your house. Plus, some indestructible home products that will repel just about anything your kids can dish out. To take the usual stain suspects out of carpets and upholstery, these are the best homemade solutions (apply each with a towel): • Dish soap: ¼ teaspoon non-bleach product (such as Dawn, Joy, or clear Ivory) plus 1 cup water.

New Geometric Paper Art from Matthew Shlian Paper artist Matthew Shlian (previously) who refers to himself perhaps more appropriately as a paper engineer, has a new series of intricate paper sculptures which are cut and constructed by hand as part of a process that involves more math than you could shake a protractor at. Via Ghostly International: Matthew Shlian works within the increasingly nebulous space between art and engineering.

artwork by lawrence yang *UPDATE* - I've been working on a new site so haven't been keeping this up to date -- in the meantime if you'd like to see my latest work, please find me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Limited edition prints are also available here. cake or death | m • o • y • a Hi. I’ve been trying some new things for a small project. Starting tomorrow, the Arludik Gallery is hosting a new show titled Merveilleux! for which I did a small ink piece. The show explores classic tales and legends, features a lot of awesome people and will ultimately be published in book form by CFSL Ink. And so I did a minotaur.

75 photos by 75 photographers As 2011 comes to a close I want to thank you all once again for continuing to support Booooooom! I am amazed that even after four years the site continues to grow at a rapid pace. 45,000 good looking people now follow Booooooom on Twitter, and our Facebook family has grown to over 74,000! I’m also starting something new in 2012 called the Secret Email Club but I’ll tell you more about it in the new year. A huge high-five to everyone who participated in any of our projects this year. The response to our Remake project was especially insane so I owe a sincere thank you to everyone who shared it (although it crushed our server and nearly brought down our entire site when the MOMA, Walker Art Center, Huffington Post, and several other huge sites all shared it at the same time). Last year I posted 75 photos by 75 photographers (2010).

Stanley Meyer's water fuel cell The water fuel cell is a technical design of a "perpetual motion machine" created by American Stanley Allen Meyer (August 24, 1940 – March 20, 1998), around which a case of controversy developed. He claimed that an automobile retrofitted with the device could use water as fuel instead of gasoline. Meyer's claims about his "Water Fuel Cell" and the car that it powered were found to be fraudulent by an Ohio court in 1996.[1][3] Description[edit] The fuel cell purportedly split water into its component elements, hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen was then burned to generate energy, a process that reconstituted the water molecules.
