The superheroes in these Berk Senturk illustrations are more harmful than lifesaving, but that’s kind of the point with this series. Entitled ‘Everybody Will Go Back to Ashes," Senturk has rendered the likes of Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Wolverine, Hellboy, Captain America, Spider-Man and more as personified cigar butts. Accompanying the pictures on the artist’s website are two sentences, which read, "Don’t waste your time. Make your life a joyful one!" Whether Senturk is inciting people to smoke tobacco or to move on from diversions, such as comic books and smoking, is for the viewer to decide.

Berk Senturk currently resides in Paris, France, having previously worked as an Art Director and Graphic Designer in Turkey. Many of his creations reference superheroes and other famous pop culture characters.
