Artist on LSD

A fascinating series of 9 drawings done by an artist under the influence of LSD can be found here. The exercise was part of a test conducted by the US government during its dalliance with psychotomimetic drugs in the late 1950s. The artist was given a dose of LSD 25 and free access to an activity box full of crayons and pencils. His evolving subject is the medico that jabbed him.
