Don't Smoke

Art direction and photomanipulation for a brazilian weekly magazine. I chose the model looking for this rare corporal expression. And I was wishing that the model could be invisible at the first looking. Then I changed the colors of his clothes. After this I designed the new shadows and background.
I used three photos made by Alex Soletto, a respected photographer in Brazil.

Alex is my copartner with this and with other works. "Don't Smoke" was published on the cover page of Istoé Magazine some years ago. We were working together at "Editora 3" publisher at that time.

Together, we win the Esso's Prize of Journalism - Magazine Category. The work was named "UMA NAÇÃO EM PÂNICO": [link] the official page of the Prize.

Makes (also made) me glad I never had gone near to smoking. It made me because my grandmother nearly died last year from lung cancer which she got from smoking. But she survived and stopped smoking. But my grandfather still smokes ...

LOL. Among all the different anti-smoking ads I've come across, this has to be the most humorous.

What a masterpiece. I didn't see this when I chose the one I used in my Valentines feature. I was in a hurry to get that out.

I couldn't believe it when I saw this. I just came back in from my afternoon walk. I was trying to find a cigarette butt with these colors.

I had the idea of using it as the torso of a body for a collage, mixed media. I just starting trying to make these.

My idea was simple. This is so over the top, well done. No wonder you got a DD, and all the other prestige and recognition for it.
