Back in the 1950s, the United States government did a lot of experiments with drugs of the psychotomimetic variety. While now experiments like this are not common they were considered normal in the past.
One of these strange experiments (one of the less deranged ones) involved feeding human participants LSD and monitoring their behavior. Oscar Janiger a psychiatrist from the University of California-Irvine Gave an artist a box full of crayons and asked him to draw his experience while on LSD. The results are just as trippy and interesting as you might have expected for them to be. In the beginning, things seem normal but as time goes by things become anything but normal.
Check out the photos below and let us know what you think, it seems this participants LSD trip was something special considering where these images end up. While there is not much on record about these images Andrew Sewell a Yale Psychiatry professor says they are from an experiment in which Jainger gave LSD to over one hundred professional artists and measured the effects it had on their abilities to create. I hope to one day see the rest of these images as I am sure they are marvelous.
