Perspective changes . . .


THE SELF-PORTRAIT MAY BE the most egotistical artistic creation, or not, but the self-portrait allows the viewer an artistic appraisal and an insight into the composition of another's psyche in a fashion that is unique. io9 has an account by Lauren Davis, "The self-portraits of an artist under the influence of meth, PCP, and other drugs" that is worthy of attention.


You see, the artist, Bryan Lewis Saunders explores the effects of various drugs — legal and illegal — on his self-perception by creating self-portraits while under the influence. This is his face on drugs. I wonder what Stevie would look like?
