F.A.Q.'s about Blotter ArtWhat is Blotter Art?
Blotter Art is one of Underground America's most important (and misunderstood) forms of folk art! Blotter Art started out as the artwork that drug dealers used to drop liquid LSD onto so that they may easily sell the drug. After some time, art lovers began to understand the value of this artform and collect and preserve the unsaturated artwork. Since then, Blotter Art has become the "eclectic" choice in art. Read more about this on the History of Blotter page.
Why do you sell Blotter Art?
We feel that Blotter Art is a very important artform. Blotter Art tells the story of a once active psychedelic underground movement. Its use of repetetive iconography can be seen in many genres of art, most notably those works created by Andy Warhol. All of the Blotter Art we sell is manufactured scrictly as art and is NOT manufactured as a vehicle for controlled substances. Our art's similarity to illegal Blotter Acid is purely asthetic, and no attempt has been made to mimic it otherwise.
Is Blotter Art illegal?
No. Blotter Art is not illegal. Blotter Art is ART! However, LSD is illegal, therefore there is no LSD present on any of our artwork.
Can I be arrested for Blotter Art?
Yes! Although the artwork itself is not illegal, you can still be arrested because it does look identical to the artwork that drug dealers sell on the streets. The arresting authorities will then have to test the artwork to see if it contains any traces of LSD, which it does not.
Our recommendation is that you frame this art and keep it at home on display.
Also, if you try to sell (or even give away) this artwork as if it were real LSD, you can be arrested and convicted of possesion and distribution of a Controlled Dangerous Substance, even though the artwork contains no illegal substance! Therefore, we recommend that only those who enjoy and appreciate these items for their artistic value bother to purchase them. Blotterart.com accepts no responsibility for the misuse of purchased items.
