Kelsey Brookes is an artist based in San Diego, California.  His work is made up series of paintings named after various chemicals or drugs.  I thought that his paintings are named after drugs because it gives you a sense of how he envisions these drugs/chemicals and their possible effects.  I feel like the amount of detail that he puts into these paintings are what makes them interesting.  It is apparent that color is important to him because he sticks to a simple pallet of colors for each piece and sticks to these colors.   Brookes originally wanted to pursue a career in the sciences, but left to become an artist. He has worked closely with the clothing company RVCA.  His work can be viewed at
