Chances are pretty good you’ve never heard of Bryan Lewis Saunders. He is described as a “performance artist, videographer, and performance poet known for his disturbing spoken word rants, tragic art performances, and Stand-up tragedy.”
And even that doesn’t do justice to the images that flow from this guy’s mind and wind up floating around in the world for us to consume.
Saunders calls himself a self-portrait artist and has vowed he will draw a rendering of his own image each and every single day for his entire life. So far he’s been true to his word: He draws anywhere from one to nine self-portraits a day and has accumulated over 10,000 of them in 21 years time.
Oh, one other thing about Bryan Lewis Saunders: He likes to use a lot of mind-altering substances. For his extremely popular series, entitled “Under the Influence,” the artist says he ingested or inhaled 18 different mind-altering drugs in 11 days and drew himself on each one.
