Artist Takes 20 Different Drugs And Creates 20 Illustrations To Show Drug Effects

Graphic designer Brian Pollett, aka Pixel-Pusha, pushed himself to the limit by doing a new type of drug every day for twenty days and making cool drawings. “My early explorations with psychedelics and electronic music parties have inspired the Binge project,” Pollet told Bored Panda. “At this point in my life, I desire to express my drawing ideas on what I’ve learned from psychedelics, the creative process, and electronic music.” We’ve covered artists like him, who create under the influence, before here.

“Imagine the past, future, and linear time is gone,” Pollett explained to A+. “You can just focus on your existence in the present. The idea of tomorrow is laughable. The drug effects enable me to create art without concern of outsider judgment, without over analyzing my process, and intuitively enjoy creating the most honest work.”

Bored Panda does not endorse illegal drug use. Refer to your local laws before indulging in something potentially illegal.

Any artist who tried to do graphics being drunk will probably agree with me that it's probably mainly fake. It's way to perfect. There are very advanced techniques used here and there is no way a person after drugs would make it look so neat. Check Witkacy to see what I mean. And no digital medium is an excuse, I know what I'm saying.

He would have created the art after the effects wore off, while trying to create an image that reflects the experience. For example, DMT is VERY powerful and you can't really see anything around you, or move for that matter, and Ketamine makes you very sluggish and lazy.

Some people here are so literally minded! Where does he say that he made this illustration during the high itself? He's just trying to express his impression of how it affected him. These comments about "that's not possible" are so tedious. And so is the comments about how wrong or illegal it is. Don't like drugs? Then don't take them! Let everybody else do as they please.

Yeah, you're right. I thought of that possibility too, though I forgot to mention it in a previous reply to seomeone else. These might as well be drawn from memory, while sober.
