death by cigarettes: process blog

the design is made from two packs of cigarettes, although i only used a few cigarette butts. Didn't really smoke any of them (i quit smoking about 5 years ago), i just let it finish by itself and collected the ash.

added some paper cutouts to form the eyes and nose. dropped some cigarette ashes to form the outline of the skull.

The skull seemed a bit off at this point so had to tweak it a bit.

Moved the nose and teeth up a bit.

changed the background to black to make it fit the shirt color. A bit of editing in photoshop and voila! It's done!

it's up for scoring...please vote and comment :)

this is awesome. What's with the BS score? Maybe you can sell it to a anti-tobacco lobby group? Worth a shot.


Neato mosquito but even cooler for not smoking no more! What gave you this idea?


New to the site, really like this one. Did you think about using the yellow cigarette butts to simulate yellowed teeth? That would throw off the monochrome look though. Nice work.
