Datura Stramonium by Elliesmeria
Datura Stramonium
Datura Stramonium "Jimsonweed" known to cause confusion, loss of memory, extreme thirst and hallucinations. Very beautiful but also very deadly I wanted Datura to have that "vacant" look.This is the first one of a new series I'm working on of psychoactive plants.

 
All the different species of datura are hallucinogenic, and we're traditionally used by witches as part of their flying potions and by the native Americans during rituals. Datura is part of the deadly nightshade family and is commonly found all over the world. People commonly report intense feelings of a really bad un-quenchable thirst, confusion, insanity, a state of delirium, seeing people from the past and strangely smoking cigarettes which aren't really there. All parts of this plant are poisonous but the seeds and leaves especially so. It is exceptionally hazardous as a drug because the toxicity varies from plant to plant.

I know I haven't drawn anything in a while but I've been inspired to start a new series of psychoactive plant ladies! First up Jimsonweed or Datura Stramonium. All the different species of datura are hallucinogenic, and we're traditionally used by witches as part of their flying potions and by the native Americans during rituals. Datura is part of the deadly nightshade family and is commonly found all over the world. People commonly report intense feelings of a really bad un-quenchable thirst, confusion, insanity, a state of delirium, seeing people from the past and strangely smoking cigarettes which aren't really there. All parts of this plant are poisonous but the seeds and leaves especially so. It is exceptionally hazardous as a drug because the toxicity varies from plant to plant.  But I have to say out of all the hallucinogenic plants, I find Datura trip reports to be the most interesting.

Vast by Elliesmeria
Vast
The vastness of both our oceans and our universe. Oh and I made myself a little diving mech glove, with little circuits, gauges and strange shiny buttons (to prevent drowning while exploring).

Stuck by Elliesmeria
Stuck
Painted my arm yesterday, doing this is like therapy. I get to meditate on my thoughts and let my brush work out all my problems and later I get to wash it all away. :)

Prehistoric Princess by Elliesmeria
Prehistoric Princess
A prehistoric geisha/princess wears the crown of a triceratops, a necklace from the teeth of raptors and a dress of feathers.  She's strong but in this moment she shows a moment of compassion. In my story shes looking out for her long-lost lover; perhaps he's left long ago on a dinosaur hunt and never returned or maybe he lost his way back?

Hello there, I'm Elle! Im a pretty artistic person who loves sleeping in the sun, driving a little too fast down the freeway with my music a little too loud late at night, exploring new places, curling up with fresh sheets right out of the dyer, cuddling, watching tv in bed with a cup of hot chocolate and watching the bad weather outside from inside curled up with fuzzy blankets :3 I always like to say that I can make anything out of everything and I believe thats true with enough time and motivation. I cook, create, bake, photograph, paint, draw, sketch, eat, sleep, nap all that stuff. Feel free to browse/ comment on my art. I really enjoy hearing what everyone has to say!

Hi Everyone! There's been a new chapter in my life! I just wanted to say I'm back now! I've left the Navy, gone back to school a bit and have decided to pursue my passion for art through tattooing. I'm now apprenticing under this guy instagram.com/briangtattoo at a great little shop in Artesia, CA called Black Tie Affair Tattoo Parlor. I've been here for about 6 months and holy mole, I've been learning so much. I literally look at art differently now, there's so much to learn and so much inspiration floating around everywhere! Its almost overwhelming how much stuff I need to work on! I really want to become a great tattooist (and they say great tattooing comes from great art) so as of now I will try to start uploading more of my sketches and things I've been working on. Please feel free to critique and comment with things you like and don't like. I could really use the feedback! Thank you all so much! 

Oh and I have an instagram now, I know I'm late and theres not that much up there but feel free to follow me: instagram.com/pinapberry
