Sweet Breath by Makkon Sweet Breath by Makkon
Final submission to the Ugly Truth (sorry for the reupload).

I lived between Missouri and Arkansas for 2 years, and nearly everyone smoked there. I got a face-full of a lot of second hand smoke and, due to the nature of my work, bad breath. I don't think people who smoke a lot quite fully comprehend how foul their breath smells. It's unreal, but I never said anything.

You can never hide the smell. People can still smell you. You smell how Mr. Smiles looks.

Oh god, you're so right about that, ha. My dad smokes, and when he would ask me to do things on the computer for him, it was difficult to sit there with him breathing in my general direction.

Interesting design, though. :D

I love how you refer to him as Mr. Smiles. And It's an awfull smell, I never really thought about how it would look as a thing, but this is it. You've captured the stink of smoke as a thing. Best of luck on the contest this is by far one of my favorite entries.

Looking at this, I could actually SMELL the acrid, foul odor of smoke. Just for a brief second, to be sure (and no one in my house smokes or has ever smoked), but this image's evocative power is THAT strong. Kudos to you. Best of luck to you in the contest.

Nice work and best of luck in the contest. It's definitely one of the best submissions that I've seen for it, especially if they're looking for attention-grabbing poster work.
