We Want Your Soul by RichardTheRough We Want Your Soul by RichardTheRough
Personal artwork against society's illness.
Take a look to the text and try to find the message through the red words.
Photoshop, Illustrator and a subversive mind.

Re-take of the last version [link] , more scratched, more texturized and more "vintage propaganda feel". Enjoy!

Is this based off the "Adam Freeland" song?

Either way I like it.

I appreciate the "bloody disgusting/sadly true".
The purpose was to shock but also to think about its message.
And I saw that it works.
Not bad.

hahaha yeah if there was no shocking of its urgent message then people need help
but I really hope the viewers not only are shocked by the message but take it a determined step further... =]

I see that so many people are waking up now and regain their sight. We need to get back the real truth about human nature which is love,consciousness,creation, nature etc.
The truth have been erased from our minds by tellevison,radios,religion etc.
But we are stronger than them and the love will win!

Exactly.
Wise words Paul.

But the point is not to win, but to be conscious.

Many thanks 4 watch and faves.
And for have understood the meaning behind the poster.
Appreciated it a lot.
Chhers mate :ahoy:

p.s. at least it's not a matter of "destroy", it's more a matter of self knowledge of this thing.
Manipulation of society by the society itself it's the human being, it's inevitable.
The difference is if you recognize it or not.
Ignorance is the best way to control the others.
Like fear.

I love both the visual and the message! :)
I'm a strong supporter of individuality. No one should have to feel like they should conform and be a blind sheep to society in order to fit in. Society is flawed.

Perfectly caught the point.
This is why I enjoy to do posters and avdertising.
Even not paid.
TO SPREAD MESSAGES.

(and if sometimes you find somebody who pay you to do that, better...)

Anyway! I'm jokin! Thanx a lot forr the intelligent comment, I appreciate it mate, cheers! :ahoy:

Hey there .

I have to say , i realy like this peace ,got to it through nomoreignorance :)

Just one little thing , i think that this wish to be payed for ... anything we do even what we enjoy alot or are doing for the good of others , is actualy one of the tools society uses to have controle over us .

As if respect isend rewarding enoth .

I understand evryone gots to make a living though ...

No paying, absolutely.
My joke in the comments was just a joke.
I do also stencils and stickers about this theme and others (fight capitalism, society's illness, globalization, war and others) and I put my money without any return and I will keep it without any doubt.
Spread messages is a question of spread thoughts, not a promotional to who does it and his designs.
If you want to use the image in a blog or print for flyers you're welcome mate.
Keep it up, I support you :thumbsup:

Haha, i'd love to get paid for my art! :D So definitely no complaints there! But I know what you mean, it's a fun, creative way to spread your ideas and make people think. :D I don't know what I would do if I had to keep everything all bottled up inside!

No problem though, man. :bow: Keep up the amazing work. :thumbsup:

I am just guessing here , but at this moment i am thinking the society doesent care about our money , they care about our time and energie , i think thats what they want to have power over , money is just a tool to make us feal good with it :P

Tell me if im wrong , i would accept it , as ignorant as i am about these subjects :)

Exactly.
"WE BUY YOUR SOUL.
And you spend money to make it possible."
Buy or socially die, you buy you lose your soul away.
And sometimes this is called TREND.
