False Sense of Security by kolaru False Sense of Security by kolaru
It's been a while since I've submitted anything. ^^; And wow this one took me a while .3.

This artwork depicts how smoking creates a sense of happiness, acceptance and/or security for the smoker, yet what all it really does is kill them. Hence the skeleton rising from the smoke and hugging (or choking..?) the smoking woman.

I read the message loud and clear the first time I saw it. While it's morbid, I can't help but feel that in the end it doesn't matter. Because even though the smoker is gradually dying and death is inevitable, at least they are actually happy. Even if it is for just a few minutes.

Yeah...the truth is sad sometimes, isn't it :( It goes for all forms of addiction such as those of drugs, alchohol, etc. as well.
Just curious, are you a smoker? :0
