While studying self portraits, I came across this article called "Self Portraits on Drugs". Basically, the artist, Brian Lewis Saunders, wanted to change his perception of his self. He took a different drug everyday, and drew a self portrait of himself on that drug. The portraits that followed are a somewhat frightening view of a descent into depression and an eventual hospital visit. He claims to want to continure the experiment, but space out his drug use. Here are some of the ones I like the most/felt to be the most powerful. Read the whole article and see all the pictures here +
