Society has lots of issues and that is no secret. Lots of artists create art connected with those issues: to spread awareness and to talk about the things we have to change so the world can become a better place for everyone.

That is exactly what artist Domien Delforge does. This comics artist and illustrator creates art about toxic masculinity, gender stereotypes, women's issues, and many other things. His art is sometimes dark and twisted, many times having sexual and political themes. However, Domien manages to capture your attention, and not only make you laugh, but also make you think.

Domien told Bored Panda: "My father always said: a dirty mind is a joy forever. I love that. But in general: it is about the importance of humor and being able to laugh with practically everything. Making jokes is important to bring messages with a more serious tone to a wide public. And laughing with everything is important to fight censorship because censorship these days is a global enemy to a lot of people."

Domien Delforge told us what inspires him to create art: "Almost everything that is happening around me. During the day, I work for a bank, something most people consider to be rather boring. It is a fact that working for a bank means following a lot of rules and regulations. I always think that following these rules during the day frees my mind so I can create them at night. Making illustrations, there are no rules and everything is possible."

I find people often do this to show that they disapprove of masks, while still wearing one as a way to abide by regulations.

The artist shares what got him into art: "I was always interested in art, especially pop art. We had a huge Lichtenstein print at home when I was a kid, it always fascinated me. My wife has been making illustrations for a longer time, so we had everything in our home to make them (computer, Wacom tablet, software, …) A few years ago I was bored at home and started playing with it. After a few months, I started an Instagram page to share it and that was about the start of it all."

Domien told Bored Panda why he chose to create the type of illustrations he does: "I like to find the balance between happy and playful colors, sending a message that can be political activism or just dirty-minded. Spreading a message in a playful way makes you able to reach a wider crowd. Also: I’m not the best illustrator ever, so my style also represents the lack of pure illustrative talent."

Domien describes his art as pop-arty, cartoonlike drawings. The artist mentioned that they are best understood by someone with an open and especially dirty mind. Domien described his style of drawing as simple and clear with a lot of influence from pop art, dot work, etc.: "I want my works to be clear in less than 5 seconds, that is what I aim for."

Domien told us how he comes up with the ideas and the themes for these illustrations: "Sometimes out of anger if something comes up in the news, sometimes an image just appears in my head. Happens a lot just before I go to sleep, laying down in my bed. I always send an e-mail to myself at that time so I don’t forget it. Happens a lot that I wake up in the morning and 5 random e-mails with random words show up in my inbox. I then try to re-make the image in my head."

I think he is absolutely right. Touching below the armpit, like shown on the left, makes your hands sweaty. Better to touch on the shoulder, like shown on the right.

Omg I relate so much. People think you're with women for attention- and if you're with a man they think "so you're straight now! Sorry you no longer qualify for our book club" I get it if someone thinks it's hot but that doesn't mean it's more or less hot than any other couple and we're certainly not there to entertain others.

One of my professors (male btw) once told us in a man's brain, they are thinking "If they are having that much fun without a guy, imagine how much fun they would have with me, a guy." Yes it's sexist and yes men are basic and dumb when it comes to a lot of stuff.

Yeah, so. Y'know. Why would you stare at a couple making out? Do not stare, it's rude. Mind your own business. Doesn't matter which gender you're attracted to, you still shouldn't stare them. I bet none of you would like, if bunch of randos kept staring at you and your S/O like your life is for their entertainment.

I feel a little uncomfortable about long or involved PDA regardless of who is doing it but it has to be pretty over-the-top to make me think "gross". One of the things I get irritated about when people get upset about homosexual couples is that they are thinking about those people having sex. I like to point out that if they think about that and are thinking it's "gross" then what do they think about when they see their parents, or grandparents, or other male/female couples they know? Yeah, just stop thinking about what other people are doing in the bedroom with their partner. :-)

Exactly. I dont like too exagerated kissing in public (like making out). But I dont care who does it, I simply feel uncomfortable qnd its my problem not theirs. The people who say that a gay kiss is gross or not appropriate for kids its the same people who is fine seeing hetero couples kissing or even having sex in media.

I think both should be done in private. Wait, wait, wait, before you download the hell out of me. I mean full on tongues down each other's throats almost getting it on making out. In public is to much to me for anyone to be doing. A simple kiss that lasts even 10 seconds, is cool. But not going at it hardcore, you know what I mean?

I'd like to see the porn browsing history of traditional Republican politicians. How many of them oppose gay marriage, but enjoy same sex videos (either gender). I bet a lot are like that. Bunch of hypocrits. They consider same sex people in porn as jerking off material, but not as people who are deserving of love and relationships.

He is not right either way. Lesbians dont care to be a man's fantasy. He is homophobic towards the men and a pervert towards the women. No lesbian wants a man drooling over them, just like a straight couple don't want anyone drooling watching them kiss.. Well depends on the couple I guess

To those asking 'why is my preference a problem', the issue is that NEITHER of these scenarios is FOR YOU. Lesbians kiss because they like each other. Same for gay men. Same for hetero couples. NONE of that is for you. Men like to fetishize lesbian couples which is why two women making out is hot.

For the record, I understand people can't help what they are grossed out by or attracted to, but I do believe it is healthy to ask if it might be a double standard and evaluate where those feelings are coming from. Further I don't care what people think, but if they say out loud "that's gross" you will get karma'd.

Western men only think the second one is "hot" because they've been conditioned to by porn over the last fifty years. In more traditional cultures around the world, men see both as disgusting.

This is a matter of taste. IMO. Just like I would rather enjoy seeing somebody eat ice cream than sheep brains. I don't understand why my opinion is being downvoted, am I not allowed to have a taste that is different? I feel people shoud do and love what, and who they wish, but why should my opinion of what I like, and don't like to look at offend you?

"My favorite part is when an image I have in my head is created almost identical," said Damien when asked to describe his favorite thing about creating art. "The hardest part is not being able to make an image as good as it is in my head. I don’t specifically like the drawing part, I like seeing an image being made. That’s why I also like printmaking. I love silkscreen printing: an entire day of making blank pages into art is extremely satisfying."

The artist tells us a little bit more about himself: "As said before, I work for a bank during the day. When I have some spare time, I like climbing (bouldering specifically), traveling, and enjoying good food and drinks.

I guess I always felt a bit like an outcast. Too normal to be part of the outcasts and too weird to be part of the normal crowd. I guess my current combination of banker/illustrator reflects this. During my teen years, I struggled to find this balance. Growing up and now being able to express a lot of things in my art makes it much easier to cope with this. I've now found the balance between being a 32-year-old creative guy and a grumpy old man at the same time and I love it."
