We all know there are a billion things wrong with our society.

Yet not a lot of people openly talk about it. Our society has gotten so toxic to a point that it is affecting people’s health mentally and physically. Society is ruining the environment around us. Even though there are people trying really hard to fix some of these major flaws in our society, some of the problems remain consistent. All we can do is sit back and just watch it happen. It is sad but it is the truth, and the truth is always bitter.

We live in a cruel world, and this has been perfectly demonstrated by John Holcroft, an artist and illustrator, through his illustrations. His illustrations are in a very vintage-like style and will make you ponder upon all the flaws of our society.

You can support John on his website and Facebook. Scroll down below to see some of his illustrations:
