Smoking Dead by KrisCooper Smoking Dead by KrisCooper
Quitting smoking was hard for me, but looking and feeling like this wouldn't be much fun either. A die hard habit can equal a hard death. If you smoke, quit now.

A few weeks ago my professor, Don Seegmiller, told my digital painting class that our final project for this summer's was to create and submit an entry to this contest. I found that to be both ironic and sobering, as I was currently in the process of quitting. Researching and focusing on this assignment has been helpful in my attempt to quit; I still have the patch on my shoulder, and I still haven't touched a cigarette since my quit-date. I'm done with tobacco forever. Thanks Don.

So much poison and death as you illustrated here; a gross, rotting, dried husk of a corpse... yuck, when I think of all that tar...!

Congrats on quitting, now you can save all that money you'd spend on packs and buy yourself something nice. Lord bless you and stay healthy :-)

That is a sickly little man. You definitely convey the nasty look of the "smoking dead". The tar seeping out the ribs and the throat maggots are the most effective part for me.
