Thirsty Work



The image above comes from an amazing online museum of vintage Soviet anti-alcoholism posters. I can't help wishing today's propaganda had half as much aesthetic appeal!

Okay, admittedly I'm not a drinker or an alcoholic, but I'm not really sure I'd find that picture a deterrent if I was...

It is very cool, though.

Okay, I look at that and see a head-shaped medicine cabinet full of aftershave. I'm not sure what that says about me psychologically...

But no, it doesn't really have a "don't be an alcoholic" vibe.

oh, don't let any one look inside my head like that. the fumes alone would knock you over, and not just alchohol. and the visuals are enough to get tim leary high.

I love it. It looks like Hugh Lofting's Dr Doolittle drawings kinda.
