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


    That always happens to me.

    That kind of goes with my theory that drugs can help you shutdown your left brain and use just your right.

    out of the bunch, I'd say the one right after he's taken the acid and the one where he's coming down are most interesting... I guess where his rational mind still has a little hold over him.

    startled by something on the floor...lol.

    Patient makes the last half-a-dozen strokes of the drawing while running back and forth across the room.
    Thats an intersting approach to drawing...

    If this is true, I wonder how many "master artists" had used drugs while painting? I mean, you have to wonder where the hell some of them get all of those strange ideas.

    ive often wondered how the creative process would be affected while being in an altered state of mind.
    ive tried drawing while intoxicated, and while my mind ran wild with ideas...my hands were too clumsy to DO anything with them, and by the time i sobered up enough to be able to draw, the ensuing headache deterred me from trying,....
    in this study , the subject took 2 doses, and kinda went nuts and couldnt focus, then lost any enthusiasim he had after he came back down. i wonder if you could get a more focused effect with smaller doses.

    not that im encouraging anyone to try this...just curious is all.

    Found this thread, and thought I'd add a detail scan of a pen-and-ink I did while on two hits back in 1990 or so. The color was added later. No pencil was harmed in the drawing of this monstrosity - it was straight rollerball-to-paper when I was peaking.

    AFAIK, both Alex Grey and Venosa are not painting under the influece of mushrooms or acid. They exit this realm through DMT.

    Venosa's gem-quality paintings fit perfectly along many of the expriences described by DMT users. But DMT is a whole different story, there are drugs ___ and there is dmt ^^^.

    You can read about DMT here.

    Another very interesting article about Aldous Huxyl's theory about our perception being normall reduced by our primitive, concepteous brains.

    Its all rumors, though.

    Grant Morrison is another one who praises the effects of DMT.

    also admits to consuming around a few grams of hash a day for the last ten years or so.

    that guy's got a dream job if i've ever heard one.

    Interesting concepts here. One of my favorite artists is Ernst Fuchs-
    He taught Venosa (and Im sure many other artists) a certain discipline of painting [the mische technique]. He did hish hash, DMT, and other psychedelics. You should check his work out. I love his perception of Malachs and Cherubs.

    Ernst Fuchs Homepage

    Here is another one with many fantastic artists and Fuchs also:

    More Comtemporary Fantastic Realists

    Also, alot of Venosas Paintings are from his mushroom experiences (see his latest book) and from his ayuhausca intoxications ( which contain DMT like substances).

    If you ever come across Ernst Fuchs book called "Architectura Caelestis: Painting in the Hidden Prime of Styles", he talks exstensively about painting under the influence of drugs and then learning to tap into this mode, or way of abstract thinkng of the painting process without the use of drugs or meditation. Excellent read!!!, but a very expensive book.

    no sleep

    I tend to work pretty well when I am half asleep. I haven't done any drugs or ever drank any alcohol (I'n not religious), so I actually try and see what kind of effects sugar, caffene, sleep deprevation, music, and other controllable factors have on my artwork. So far, I find that being half awake really helps me think a little quicker and put down ideas more easily. I think it's because I care less about the kind of art I'm going to produce since I'm more concerned about getting sleep.

    Yes, insomnia, or the lack of sleep, causes a chain reaction in our brains' chemicals that produces a small amount of LSD.

    Ive been missing sleep at nights for almost a month now, I'm pretty well stocked, I suppose. Almost every face I draw blinks at me.. I almost catch them sometimes!

    Eyal I havn't researched it but I'm relatively positive that LSD is only a synthetic compound and has not been found anywhere in nature.

    and shake your body like a baby born addicted to crack
    And since lifes a gamble like the crabstables at Vegas
