If the Mayans were right and 2012 is really the end, you'll be surprised at how well one character in the Romantically Apocalyptic art series seems to take it.

Romantically Apocalyptic is an interesting take on the end of the world created by Vitaly S. Alexius with the aid of Meeshka. It's incredibly ironic how a gas masked soldier who looks like a Hellboy villain can be so happy about living in a grim future. Some of the works feature this unusual character enjoying a cup of coffee and selling real estate with what I assume is a smile on his face. I suppose some of us have to be optimistic should the end ever come for us.

Romantically Apocalyptic is definitely for those who have a dark sense of humor.
