It's interesting that he is smiling in some, and very serious in others.

yeah i saw this before.
it is neat but..

the one done on dilaudid and morphine ( blink.gif ) is kinda hard for me to understand.

when i had that (i have had both) i couldnt even open my eyes. i couldnt think. my thoughts were not even in my body or head.
i couldnt figure out how to get them to be. or how to talk. my mind couldnt find the right pathway in my brain to do anything but sit there with my eyes closed.

so how he draws on that, is beyond me.

Just Plain Nuts.

Maybe his doses were not as high as your were. Although I was watching a video of more of his drug induced art, and he did say that some combinations rendered him unable to function.

He seems to have an inner calm, normal type of happiness or contentment on valium and his art technique appears slower, relaxed and detail oriented in a freeflow type of style.

I've not had most of what he has tried, let along mixing them together. Although cannabis seems tame enough.

And heres his next rendering what he will sooner or later eventually portray for all to see...

While driving to the store in between drawings while trying to satisfy his severe munchies attack...

The result of thirty different drugs obviously warping his mind and twisting his judgment...

How do you know he drives, or even owns a car?

So this severe drug addict, despite openly flaunting the fact, is a okay and a real swell guy, because hes not being demonized by the public, because he is being cast within a positive light by the mainstream media...

But if he was a homeless slime bag drug addict, of the same severely addicted proportions, while openly flaunting the fact, he would be rounded up and arrested by the cops and hurled into a steel cage...

For me, he is an interesting study, in that, he says art saved his life, and it seems taking drugs turns off the maddening sounds, and opens his pineal gland.

He certainly does not physically nor mentally exhibit the signs of extreme addiction.





It is also interesting and has been medically proven, that people who hear voices/sounds in their head have a disconnection between two parts of the brain, and it may be that through art and drug use new connections may be forged.

I just hope he doesn't take a mixture of drugs that send him over the edge, but it appears he may not be mixing them now.

"People that don't 'really' know me often think I'm a party animal because of this body of work, but in truth I will only do a drug for the drawing/experience and if I've never done it before. Some drugs I have already done, but it was before I began drawing myself every day so I'll do it again under the influence. "

That's because they (the medical profession) really know very little of what's going on in the brain (chemically, neurologically) and the mentally ill are really left to their own devices, usually on the wrong drugs.

"CW: You are best known for yours series “Drugs” where you in rapid succession over the course of 11 days did 18 different types of drugs and created a self portrait on each. Even though you were temporarily brain damaged, in subsequent interviews you had mentioned wanting to try Ayahuasca, D.M.T and Crack to round out the series, when do you expect you might return to this body of work and what have you learned from the experience?

Bryan: Occasionally, when an opportunity presents itself, I’ll try something new. The most important thing I’ve learned is that drugs make me look ugly. It can be really sobering to see yourself intoxicated."
