got smoke? by cepums got smoke? by cepums
i'm not telling you that smoking is bad.. :)
i see smoking as a cool addiction to have..
but.. it's a choice to have one.. to pay not just taxes but alsow to the tabaco companies on daily basis :)
it's a choice... a grownups choise..

there's nothing in this world i would admire more then a pregnant woman... it's a whole world for a new person walking around :) some times even for twins :) i just can't not admire something like that :) the creation in process..

but then again.. every time i see a pregnant woman smoking.. well... that's just wrong...
cuz what you do - baby does.. and in this case it's not his or her choice.. so it's basicly the same as someone forcing you to start take heroin...

let him grow up and make this choice on his own :)

Hospitable environments are great, but what if he'd used a condom that day, and newborn never got to exist in any environment at all?

well... that's just catholic crap you are saying now :)
you probably haven't seen wasted dadies "watching" they kids in the park while so called "daddy" with huge tumescent head and eyes that mirror the emptines of the place where soul used to be sit there and just drink they alco... while kidd is running right under the car..
or seen 4-5 kids spending they days in dumpster kindof appartement while they parrents with some "friends" are just wasted for weeks.. so no one even makes them something to eat..
condoms are alright.. :) and life for lifes sake.. well.. tell that to a 2 year old girl who's been burned with hot water and has little less then half of skin left - that it's cool.. that's she's at least alive :)
yess.. you can tell such things to grownups.. and that realy is ok.. but for kidds.. i duno.. i couldn't..

Brilliant concept, smoking when pregnant is a BAD idea, and does nothing but make you look foolish. Great work!

I'm watching you, so have seen a lot of your excellent work. This follows your style and interesting concepts perfectly. I think the way you have illustrated this concept is clever and well thought out. I always love the way you compose your work and this has the same feeling of entrapment and loneliness I usually get from seeing it. Not a bad thing at all being able to really convey feelings! Obviously very well drawn and I have nothing bad to say nor do I feel I can suggest anything.

everyone always feels that way. but u know, its a really low chance that the baby will actually b harmed. i still like ur picture, but i think that people are too quick to argue for the rights of a fetus. babies are really easy to make, and there are always more.

sure.. the don't become mutants as they try to scare us.. but then again - alergies and asthma can be caused by such smoking..
as for how easy it is to make a baby.. yeah.. it's easy.. especialy if you are poor, without eduaction statisticly it's very easy for you to make a baby.. but to raise a human being.. descent human being.. who is able to live a full life.. well.. that's not as easy as just keeping your legs wide..

This is so great. In a sense of giving us a second thought about smoking, especially pregnant ladies.

I agree with your point. Pregnant ladies are like miracles... And they shouldn't smoke and spoil their babies' futures.

Yes it is very wrong to smoke while you are pregnant... Not only that it's not the child's choice, it can hurt him/her!
Again I like the colour, it's a beautiful blue and the long fingers look very interesting!
Nice done! :)

hehe.. and not just hurt the baby.. to be honest, i think there's a huge number of people who don't give a crap about that if they are hurting they kidd or not..
but child probably will have astma..or allergies.. and those drugs are quite expensive :D so there will be alot more expenses during kids childhood :D
maybe from this angle more people would realise the consiquences of they actions :D

There was a report today about this, and how in certain areas of England people might not be able to foster children under five if they smoke. My friends and I thought it funny you can put that restriction on but you can't stop a pregnant woman doing this if she wants to.

Quite a glam image, dude, I like it!

yep.. restrictions like this can be quite funny..
for example the laws about protecting nature are always hilarious.. like.. if on one side of a mountain lives one pair of crows - they are protected by law as endangered species.. while on the other side of a mountain - where crows love to live - there's whole bunch of crows :)
so.. if you want to build a chemical factory - you can't build it on the side of the mountain where crows don't like to live and only a couple of stupid birds live - you have to build the factory on the side of the mountain birds actualy love :D and as the result turn them alsow into endagered species by all the fumes your factory produces :D

The composition of your works are just god damn sexy! a very sleek piece of work with a obvious and important message. I think women are born with an instinct to protect there children, but since our intelligence has evolved at such an alarming rate... some peoples instincts are disappearing.

This is my theory of why each generation on this earth is getting more and more bleak, its because parenthood just isn't what it used to be. Especially fathers! some have lost their role to give guidance and become a true father-figure.

Unfortunately for most mothers they have to assume both roles of father and mother, which they do not get enough credit for.

Sorry for that long post :)

well.. i would like to disagree about the instincts..after all they come from our animal roots and are way older then human evolution..
it's the modern life that forces us to go against our natural instincts.. for example - food.. for milions of years the one who eats more has more strenght.. and can survive and have more sex :) while now - part of society is living in the world where food is on every corner.. and the ones who follow this old instinct become realy fat and just can't have sex as much as the thin ones :)
as for parenting.. i think there always where bad parents.. ones who sell they kids for slavery..make them work as prostitutes..drink and beat them..starve kids to half death..parents who can't deal even with themself, not even talking about kids...
it's just that now we see more of that.. since we have "human rights".. and "children right".. we sort of have a way to mesure how bad parents are...
even animals some times abandon they kids.. male tigers try to eat they children so they can have sex again with female :) at least at the begining... so it's not just a human thing.. it's just that to be a human is way more then just to be an animal..
so my point is - it's not like we are loosing our instincts :) we have always been quite crapy species :) it's just that at the modern age we start to see that not all of our instincts do good to us.. and we are able to make choices against those old habits :)

Hmm...not to mention the atrocious deformities babies of smoking mothers are sometimes born with.

And i'm half in mind to start an annoying rant about how i dislike the viewing of women as a godfucking carriage for other people to enter life, and not an actual person, but i'll take trolling to another place...

Anyway, visually it's a very pleasing piece of work. It's very nice when you sometimes add small spots of color that isn't blue or yellow.

eehz you and your dislike for little babies :)
i have said it before..and i can say it again - i don't see women just as carriage for babies.. women is way way more then this.. causes of happynes and pain.. inspiration.. and headache.. grace.. and some times the most saddest creatures on this gods forgoten planet :)

in this case i'm just talking about choices... and that choices can and have to be made by person it self...not forced by others... and this is just an example :)

I do not dislike babies, but i think that until certain age they are just objects in long-freeze - less than animals, and certainly not humans.
And for the last 21 years, i'm NOT getting what's so cute, wonderful, and awww about them.

Choices...fuck, the overwhelming majority of humans do not have enough brains to make the wise choice of not reproducing -even though- they can, and you hope they won't sicken their unborn foetuses...sweet innocence.
