Creative Illustrations Explaining The Difference Between Love And Lust
You ever experienced being attracted to someone with quite an intensity that sometimes made you doubt yourself if you are falling in love with them or the sexual energy between you two is like a comet crash beyond explanation?
You adore the way they behave around you, the way their voice sounds, those cute dimples when they smile; just as you adore the curves of their body, the way they smell and the light touch of their fingers on your body But, hell, how to know if you’re just being super attracted or freaking falling for them? The confusion kills you. It starts to interfere with your routine and you often catch yourself fantasizing about them when you really need to be focused on an important task. You try to fight away the thought of them, but the more you suppress it, the more vividly their silhouette appears in front of you. It’s torture. It feels like torture. Like a freaking torture. Like a beautiful freaking torture. Like a beautiful passionate torture. Damn. If you’ve been in these shoes, you know that I’m trying to explain the unexplainable here. Believe me I’m trying to find the best words but hell, who could ever sum up love or lust? Anyway, what’s left in our hands is to try. Artist Karina Farek is trying too.
Karina is a cool girl from the east coast of Texas. She’s making art on the internet and has previously worked for Buzzfeed, CollegeHumor, Aardman Nathan Love. She is a lover of deep-sea fish, Yu-gi-oh, werewolves, Billy Joel and cooking competition shows.
