Here is a rough idea on a new concept. It is not perfect, but you can get the general idea.

Here's a new concept. I really like this one.

Let me know what you think.

Great idea, now if you tried a motor vehicle's exhaust pipe similar theme

Or on a cigarette packet, e.g. voting for a political party can damage
your wealth. For a tobacco tax makes the poor poorer so they can get bad
health quicker and so can't pay for proper hygiene or the health care
and the necessities of life needed by their families, if they have to pay for
the higher saleries and the perks of public servants by way of tobacco tax.

There are lots of
twists that can be done to conventional themes and also opposite opinions.

The message is conveyed more directly and in a simpler layout in this last one than some of the earlier ones (decreasing also the likelihood of causing some false side-associations)...and therefore relying less on the text! Actually, regarding the fact that we're living in a visual age, less, little and even no text is preferable After all, in a semiotic point of view, the whole poster itself is considered a text already! You might even try a more striking 'split portrait' displaying a transformation from a live skin to a dead one, similar to what Matt (a.k.a longside1 ) posted before in 'Progeria' in People Photos. Would be delighted to know about the rest of your good project : )

Cheers!

I agree with Bahadir, the later images (cross, jail, skulls) have a bigger impact - I found the orange (flames, background, etc) distracting from the message itself.

Depending on the target use of the poster, perhaps leaving the text out all together would force the viewer to think about what message you're trying to convey. Perhaps lighting the image in such a way that the two points "smoke" and "death" really stand out... I don't know how you'd go about doing it (we've already established that my PS skills are poor), but I'm guessing you'd do another fantastic job
