This Scott Blake self portrait is literally rave-worthy! Made entirely from Ecstasy pills, the portrait is puzzled together perfectly to create a unified image of the artist's face. Most recognized for his celebrity barcode art, and other forms of digitalized mosaic artwork, Blake takes the artform a step further in this controversial statement about our prominent and still growing rave culture.

Not to worry art appreciators -- the Ecstasy in Blake's portrait is not from his personal collection. Scott collected all of the XTC pill images from DanceSafe.org, a harm reduction organization promoting safety within the rave community.

Blake's ability to piece together various elements into a cohesive picture through his mosaic artwork while making a statement requires true artistic vision.
