This website will act as the platform for the Official Shulgin Auction of rare, signed sheets of Blotter Art. All profits will go to the Shulgins.
In late 2010, Sasha Shulgin, discoverer of hundreds of psychoactive chemicals, suffered a stroke.
Although he has been recovering since this time, the Shulgins are struggling against a tide of medical and care bills. Sasha continues to face a variety of age-related health challenges.
Despite Sasha’s work in the laboratory enriching the lives of millions and the books written by Ann and Sasha brightening the days of all who have read them, the Shulgins have received very little monetary gain from their endeavours.
Please browse this website to learn more about the items in the auction.
From Team Shulgin
Sasha has spent his life doing basic research and giving his work away for free. In recent decades science has moved to a model in which Intellectual Property is frequently held close to the chest and leveraged for maximum profit, but Sasha did not use this model.
Although large sums of money are being made with the fruits of his work, Sasha did not make much money. He just did the work he loved without thought for his own retirement. Now his medical condition is such that huge sums of money are required to make him comfortable in his declining years, and the Shulgins simply do not have it.
