An artist's self-portrait while on various drugs.  I am on what he calls Klonopin and Geodon.

Good lord. See, this is why they never tell you to look in the mirror when you're on hallucinogens. I liked the Morphine IV one, though.

Yes, that was pretty epic. Maybe one day we will do hallucinogens together.

Well, it's been an awfully long time, although I never made a formal declaration that I wouldn't do them again. Maybe if you promise to hide all the mirrors first. Actually it might be better to just stay in the forest.

I think the forest would be the way to go.

I just started reading Just Kids, Patti Smith's book about her relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe. When she talks about Robert meeting her family for the first time, she says "to stay his nerves, Robert decided to take acid." And goes on to say that for Robert it seemed more natural. I personally always avoided social interactions with outsiders as much as possible when on acid so I thought this was interesting. His brain must have been operating on a totally different level for him to feel more comfortable while on acid. Also I think the acid was just way better back then. Certainly it was more pure.
