Illustration Friday - GLAMOUR

Bette Davis the epitome of glamour in that wonderful film where Paul Henried put two cigarettes in his mouth, lit both of them and handed one to her. That film did so much for the tobacco industry!

So as an antidote I also offer one of my favourite anti smoking ads.

My mom died of lung cancer from smoking for 40 years, so I applaud your antidote.

Thank you all for your kind comments.
Rrramone, it's such a terrible addiction isn't it. I'm so glad I escaped from the clutches of nicotine some time ago. But the portrayal of smoking as cool, glamorous or rebellious is such a seductive message to the young. It was the only reason I persisted beyond the first disgusting tasting puffs.
Harry, how nice of you to visit, and anyone reading this, go and look at Harry's blog - he has great drawings with very funny observations.
