Simple, but powerful piece. Looks like something one would see in ALL media; internet, magazines, television.
The symbolism couldn't be more obvious. But, what I see could be different from what another person sees.

What I see is how in today's world, we are SO dependent on drugs. That we might as well bottle feed our babies drugs. If you have a cold, there's a drug for that. If you have ADD there's a drug for that. If depression, there's a drug for that. Allergies? Drugs. Pain? Drugs. Can't sleep? Drugs. Little ones are sick? Drugs.

There's a drug for practically EVERY problem. There's even drugs for children. Children's Cough and Cold. Mucinex Kid's. Children's Advil.

We are made to believe that drugs are the only solution to all of life's problem. But really, things like exercising, talking with your peers, going outside; basically DOING something is the best solution. Depression? Talk to someone. Can't sleep? Go camping for a week (being away from technology helps bring your sleep cycle back to normal). Got a cold? Vitamin C and plenty of rest. Pain? Ice pack or a warm towel.

There are natural ways to treat and deal with life's issues. Best part? No freaky side effects.


Back to the art.

Vision: You captured a serious issue in a simple piece. And it sends a powerful message.

Originality: Though, we see this issue addressed in ads, I've never seen it addressed this way. Very original.

Technique: There's no need for all the crazy detail one will see in cads about this issue. You're technique shout "This is the issue, simple as that".

Impact: As I said: simple, but powerful. Amazing piece.

Keep up the good work! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/c/c…" width="20" height="20" alt=":clap:" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="60" title="Clap"/>

Hm, this image is indeed AMAZING. This art I have never seen before and is so clean. This looks perfect for a commercial. The texture is so soft and rough at the same time with a stencil look. I also just LOVE the texture. It would just be GREAT if stuff like this could be shown more often on pages. It's just so COOL. These would make greatly shown if animated in a Commercial. Again, AWESOME art work! This is indeed a fair looking picture and I can not say no to this. Keep up the awesome amazing good work! I rate this a 5 star image! This is my opinion so do NOT judge me because this is my opinion and it's what I think.

Hello everyone. As far as this thread is about drugs, I wanted to ask if anyone of you guys knows where can I buy viagra? It is very important for me, as I am suffering from erectile dysfunction, and I need some drugs in order to fix it. Unfortunately, I am not so young anymore and I can't have sex without it. I am looking for a good and trusted shop, where I could buy viagra kopen nederland . It's my first time, I haven't ever bought this earlier. Any help is going to be appreciated, thank you in advance!

i think this image could be interpreted in many ways. Which is probably the intention. ^^ the way i see it, it signifies pregnant or breastfeeding mothers who are addicted to drugs, which would affect their children, in more ways than just physically.

Uhhh, what exactly is the message with this piece?

i don't know the intended message of the piece
a message that i received very powerfully was thinking of how bottles are often used for babies as a substitute for breastfeeding, a substitute that doesn't give the baby the same deep nurturing that breastfeeding provides, and when babies grow up, the might seek recreational or prescription drugs to try to fill their needs, when really these tools don't provide as much nurturing as self-care and human connection...

All of the sudden I'm reminded of that song "The Dope Show" by Marilyn Manson. Good work as usual, Benny boy! :)
