Woman Draws Self-Portraits Before And After The Use Of LSD

According to users, it’s hard to put into words what drugs do to the body and brain. Therefore, a Reddit user posted drawings of herself, made before, during and after the use of LSD — while a friend talked her through the experience.

The difference is as shocking as it is fascinating. One thing is for sure, though: briefly, she was on a whole different planet.

Have a look below to see what we mean…

#1. Before any noticeable effect.


#2. After 34 minutes

“Are you feeling anything? – Nope. – Those are some bright colors ! – Yeah. That’s probably gonna get worse.”

#3. After 1 hour and 45 minutes


#4. After 2 hours and 45 minutes

“That was a good idea, buying coloured pencils.”

#5. After 3,5 hours

“I didn’t draw the eyes. Do you want me to draw the eyes? I don’t feel like drawing the eyes.”

#6. After 4 hours and 45 minutes

“Here you go. I’m violet. Usually, I draw the eyes at the very end, because I don’t want the picture to look at me while I’m drawing it. Here, I didn’t want the picture to look at me at all.”

#7. After 6 hours

“I lost the black pencil. I only had the coloured ones.”

#8. After 6 hours and 45 minutes

(my personal favorite)

#9. After 8 hours

After 45 minutes in the dark, listening to some Pink Floyd, she started to draw again.

#10. After 8 hours and 45 minutes

She didn’t seem quite satisfied with the last one, so she directly started this one: “During the previous one, I tried to draw what was inside my head, but in the middle of it, things were happening outside my head instead.”

#11. After 9,5 hours

While the effects were disappearing.
“Do you want to draw a last one? Like, a normal one?
– I’ll try. “

OMG — that looks like it was some trip! But remember kids, using drugs is not without risks! If you smoke weed, for example, dogs will look down on you and it’s highly possible a non-pot-smoking alien will steal your girlfriend.
