25 Brutally Honest Illustrations About Modern Life

Let’s be honest, modern life is so far away from the parody that you see in movies and TV. You can’t say 10 things that you hate about a person and fall in love in the end, and no sane man over 70 would read his entire love story to a random patient from a godforsaken notebook without passing out from exhaustion.

Life can be cruel, and merciless; and if you’re not ready to keep up with its pace, you’ll find yourself strumming your guitar on a sidewalk asking for loose change. Sure, there’s nothing wrong with fantasizing about a life that would make Walt Disney proud. But once you wake up, you’ll be back to the harsh reality of life where everything is as brutally honest as it can be.

Here are just some of that brutal honesty coming from Mexico City illustrator Eduardo Salles.
