the effect of LSD on art

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.
Check this out. It is seriously awesome.

I love deadpan reports of bizarre activity.

"Upon completing the drawing the patient starts laughing, then becomes startled by something on the floor."
