Last composition of the True Love Series is done!

This piece is called "Toxic Rewind" and it took me over a 100 hours to complete using mechanical drafting pens on heavy bristle board. All my compositions are part of a theme and represent my opinions. Here's what "Toxic Rewind" is about:
I know what you're thinking. How can this composition remotely be associated with 'love and relationships?' Hang in there with me. Despite having an overwhelming feel of impending annihilation of all that is good and right in humanity; this piece is actually about the most important relationship of all: the one you have with yourself. In this picture, an array of arrows striking a strand of DNA formed by a filmstrip that continues to wind around toxic warning signs hardly seems like the kind of imagery used to promote positive self-awareness. All I'm trying to convey here is that whatever genetics or upbringing damaged you, it's never too late to PAUSE, REWIND and CHOOSE an 'alternate ending'.
