It's no secret that our society has its flaws - dependence on technology, taxes, obesity, devaluation of workers - to name a few. Some people may not even want to think about any of these problems in society but illustrator John Holcroft, on the other hand, he looks them straight in the eye and depicts them in a satirical way.

Though not all of us have to deal with such problems, it is a great reminder to pace yourself and to familiarize with the society today. Who knows, it might make you a better person in some way.

With a style based on 50's advertisements and a vintage feel - Holcroft perfectly captures today's social issues and modern behavior. Also, his illustrations do so in a brutally honest manner. Keep on scrolling to check them out, and you just might realize with what social media problems you have to deal every day.

Bullshit. America does more than any nation to clean up emissions, but Barack Hussein Obama purposefully agreed to allow Borh China and India unlmited coal fired power plants WITHOUT HAVING TO LIMIT OMMISSIONS. The Paris Accord was nothing more than a leftist scam to siphon money out of America and to destroy our superior economy!

Antonio Brandao

China is the GREATEST polluting country, yet Trump gets the blame just because of political propaganda. Signing the Paris treaty will not make China pollute less. They will just have to pay a lot of money for it. And they have the money so they pay and keep polluting. To stop pollution one has to stop polluting - paying fines to other humans will not help the environment. You should put the president of China there instead of Trump.

I think this one represents paying rent, we all know that is a huge waste of money. Paying a mortgage on a home is an investment, when you sell you get your money back and more...this picture is shredding money, meaning it's not coming back to you in a usable fashion.
