	These 9 drawings were done by an artist under the influence of LSD -- 
part of a test
	conducted by the US government during it's dalliance with 
psychotomimetic drugs
	in the late 1950's. The artist was given a dose of LSD 25 and free 
access to an
	activity box full of crayons and pencils. His subject is the medico 
that jabbed him.

...cool stuff!  I love how the first drawing is rather boring, while 
the rest of them (particularly the one done 2:45 after dropping, [3] it 
ROCKS, kind of Alexandra Nichita-like, [4] [5] I'd pay for a print of 
that!) are much, much more interesting.

Note:  remember all those "this is your brain on drugs" ads with the 
fried eggs, etc.?  Well, this *really* is your brain on drugs.  Only 
problem, they couldn't use this kind of thing;  it would encourage drug 
use! ;-) :-)
