20 Funny Illustrations That Prove The World Has Seriously Changed For The Worse

We're all trying to focus on the positive things in life, but sometimes you have to look at all the ironic things that have happened in our world.

The illustrations below use a sense of humor to point out some of the negative changes our society has undergone over the past century.

Salaries have stayed the same or decreased while our bills, housing prices, and all other expenses have skyrocketed.

Children no longer spend their time playing outside, but instead waste away their days sitting in front of a computer screen.

The confidence and self-esteem of millions of people is directly dependent on the number of likes they are able to get per photo posted on Facebook or Instagram.

Relationships are no longer rooted in love, but instead have become based on short-term needs. Losing our cell phone has become one of the worst tragedies possible.

This artist creates hypnotizing glass sculptures using Fibonacci ratios

Introducing a truly cosmic being, Jack Storms.

This stunning artist is based in Los Angeles and has mastered a rare style of glass art that combines lead crystals and dichroic glass using a cold-glass technique.

I can honestly say; I have never seen glass art like this in my entire life. There are only a handful of artists in the entire world that operate on this level. Jack is definitely a trend setter in his field of work.

Due to the amount of labor and planning involved in creating the beautiful pieces of art like you see below, Jack spends anywhere from 8 to 18 weeks perfecting the process.

This is one of our favorite pieces of his work:

Jack has described his methods in this way:

"What I do is I don't use any heat at all, I grind and grind and grind and then I polish, that's what separates me from everybody else. It's much more difficult and it takes a lot more time. But for me the effects are just brilliant."

At the core of each lead crystal sculpture Jack creates, you can find the Fibonacci ratios. These ratios are found naturally all throughout our world.

Here is another video that goes into more detail about Jack and his fantastic glass art:
