Powerful Illustrations That Reveal Society’s Biggest Issues

1. We Should Know Better

What’s sad about this is that we should know better by know. Kids don’t have to have the perfect life. And yet, they shouldn’t have to deal with the constant arguments of their parents who can’t seem to see what’s really important.

2. Constantly On

How long has it been since you’ve been still? When was the last time you did nothing — absolutely nothing, except to witness the world pass you by? Only by unplugging will we start to see what really matters, what we really need.

3. Is The Smoke Worth It?

The slow path to suicide. Is it worth dying of cancer at a young age? Is it worth not seeing those around you grow up? Is it worth causing damage to those around you?

4. Too Much Pressure

Media Source

We want kids to be everything these days. To excel in everything. But have we forgotten that meaning is the only thing that will give our kids the motivation to get up every morning and work?

5. Never Enough

Media Source

We never are, are we, thin enough? We’ll have a little less lettuce and a little more water. Starving, self-deprecation, self-punishment are worth looking frail, aren’t they?

6. Showing That Bod

Media Source

Yes, we should love our body. We should be proud of its strength and what it allows us to do. What we don’t need are the eyes of others to tell us how good our body is. Our sense of self, our confidence, should do that for us.

7. More Money Now

Media Source

No, we won’t say anything, we have our money now. No, we won’t protest for others, we won’t object for ourselves. Why would we, when we have money to keep us warm at night and worry to keep us awake?

8. Can You See How Perfect My Life Is?

Let’s post how great the morning was, shall we? And shoot that perfect cappuccino we had for lunch. But let’s not talk about the sadness in the pit of our stomach.

9. Work, Work, Work

Media Source

Still in bed but emails can still be checked. Bathroom break and yes, I’ll squeeze in a short email. Work, work, work and really, what else is there to do?

10. Look Up

Media Source

Television is having a golden moment again with jaw-dropping series that leave us wanting more. But is this how we’re always going to spend our days, our nights? When was the last time you looked up at the stars?

11. Go Away

Media Source

We don’t care how dangerous your country home has become, we really can’t have you stay here. No, we’re sure you don’t have our same dreams and aspirations. How could you, when your face is blended with the thousand other faces coming our way?

12. We Need The Machine

Media Source

Where else will we get our answers from? How else will we know how to sleep right, what to eat? What will entertain us? What will make us forgot about our loneliness? We can’t take a break…we can’t.

13. Shhh…

Media Source

Everything will always remain ON from now on. It’s us, only us, who can decide when to switch everything off. When was the last time you switched off?

14. We Really Don’t Care

Media Source

Yes, we see you underneath the rubble. The rubble that we helped to cause. But then, we don’t really see you, we only see blurs while we sit cushioned on piles of cash.

15. Time Goes By…

Media Source

Remember time? Oh yes, where has the time gone by? Who knows? I’m so busy now. We’re so busy, we have no time to meet. When has 2015 gone by? Oh, who knows! Where have our 20s gone by? Ah, God, I don’t know!
