Artist used LSD. Countless artists have experimented with the effect drugs have on their work. User whatafinethrowaway, inspired by the “Nine Drawings” series which was the result of an experiment by the US government in the 1950’s, asked her friend to draw self-portraits while on LSD. The friend took 200µg of LSD and drew 11 self-portraits over nine-plus hours.

“She spent between 15 minutes and 45 minutes on each drawing,” writes whatafinethrowaway on Reddit. “It didn’t seem hard for her to focus, I was actually quite impressed by that. She just loved what she was doing. I don’t know if the change of styles was on purpose or not.”
