Perhaps this isn’t the usual type of post you’d expect to find on Cocktails and Cocktalk but #RealTalk is what we’re all about. And these illustrations represent just that. And it can be quite rare to find such intriguing, thought-provoking and relevant art these days. These images come from spanish artist Luis Quiles (better known as Gunssmithcat), who through his work speaks volumes about the destructive issues of today’s society; homophobia, sexual exploitation and the other disturbing realities of social control. And though the animated-style may convey a fa├žade of innocence, behind that lies the brutal truth of taboos that are frequently overlooked.
