A tribute of sorts to those people in the 60’s and 70’s who partook of the strange and psychedelic psychoactive effects obtained from ingesting or smoking the poison of the Sonoran Desert Toad.
The effect has been described as initially being " completely absorbed in a complex chemical event characterized by an overload of thoughts and perception, brief collapse of the Ego, and loss of the space-time continuum."

I’d be happy to provide you with links to my source for that quote, but can’t help but feel that I’d be being a tad bit irresponsible in doing so. This is a seriously potent toad!

[ink, coloured pencil and and fineliner on a coffee wash, 300gsm smooth Arches paper, and referencing the awesome Janis Joplin for cool 70’s chick look – she was the epitome of the 70’s after all imho :) ]

An autodidact in almost all aspects of my life, I have a penchant for all nerdly goodness, will take an original movie over a remake any day, and am a complete sucker for for a classic line and old corny music.
