    Intriguing work, as always.....

    So, explain the progression here.....from playing piano....to - what is this?
    What do you see as the connection between the computer keyboard and the beer bottle (I am guessing it's a beer bottle), with the skull & crossbones lurking in between?

    I'd like more information on what you're trying to convey (other than the obvious anti-drug statement here). Very interesting work.

    I thought that "keys" was going to be the common thread.........and I too got lost at the beer bottle (even tried applying the "church key" bottle opener, but it didn't take me to the next frame logically).

    Individually, the images are neat. I'd like to know what ties them together or what the "train of thought" is.

    possible development of life:
    it should reflect life, you start it as child (you're clean, right :D) playing piano etc. (could have been something else too but I've used the piano, thats why there is a blue flower, everything's just fine). Later you get older, maybe you'll get a computer (that's why I've inserted the keyboard, could have chosen a car too but it's modern times, the keys stand for fun, play). Then you'll probably face new friends, situations, step into trouble (in this pic :)), (thats a bottle of vodka), you get adiccted (in this pic :)) and one time you'll recognize that everything's lost (there are two brains in the pic which should show the process of realization). But it's too late...
    'cause such a addiction makes you pretty ugly. Don't wanna sound like a anty-drug campaign, I'm just explaining my pic :D

    No, you're not sounding preachy, I wanted you to explain it. :D As usual, your graphic work is excellent. I think I followed your train of thought pretty well, in a general way, but your explanation made it better.

    You do good work, Santino! :D

    I love the texture of the whole piece. I also enjoy thinking of the flower, skull and brain graphics as clues. The print must be amazing.

    Effective message!!!

    I love the work :)

    BTW, K8's avatar is Liv Tyler as Arwin. I believe that shot is taken from LOTR: Return of the King.
