    This Artwork About Social Media May Be Terrifying Because It's True

    Art that makes you go hmmm...

    Whether you’re into it or not, social media is everywhere because it's our new normal.

    Sam Bailey is a 21-year-old illustrator from Slough, UK who creates incredible digital art like this that offers powerful commentary on how people use and consume social media today.

    Sam tells Buzzfeed he’s been creating artwork for as long as he can remember, but started taking a serious interest in it about six years ago.

    So, what inspires him to create this type of thought-provoking work?

    Sam also told Buzzfeed people have reacted very positively to his digital pieces so far.

    He has a visual way of interpreting big concepts. Like perhaps too many kids are being raised on too much media?

    Or maybe we should try eating more veggies before turning to fix our problems the pharmaceutical way.

    Which leads us to this piece that's called "Consuming Time" starring a greasy hamburger and a person drowning in its oil. Ouch!
