Bryan Lewis Saunders self portraits... on various illicit drugs

on Buspar
Bryan Lewis Saunders known mostly for his spoken word is an artist through and through.   Since March 30 1995, he's been producing a self portrait every day without fail.  Around 2000 he had an epiphany and decided to take a different drug every day as well and record that in his self portraits.  That lasted awhile until he suffered a mild case of brain damage.  He's since stopped taking the drugs everyday, but every once in awhile when it feels right he dips his feet in those waters again.  Here's a gallery of some of those portraits.
