Graphic designer Brian Pollett, aka Pixel-Pusha, created a new style of making art. He spent twenty days taking twenty different drugs and making illustrations while high. The San Francisco-based artist said he “wanted to create opportunities to educate, whether related to psychedelics or art.” “Imagine the past, future, and linear time are gone,” Pollett explained. “You can just focus on your existence in the present. The idea of tomorrow is laughable. I can create art without concern of outsider judgment, without over analyzing my process, and intuitively enjoy creating the most honest work.”
