Bullets (A Minute Beforehand)

This is a project that was assigned in my Drawing and Painting 101 class.
The objective was to divide the paper into 9 sections and trace a letter in each section with a background of some sort.
Section 1- Romance
It is a green F with a rose and the words "I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS" written in purple. The background is the clear, blue sky.
Section 2- Honey, This Mirror Isn't Big Enough For the Two of Us
The F is made of cracked glass. The background is the tops of the Twin Towers meeting the sky, and the time and date that the picture is set; 9/11/01, 8:45 am- one minute before the attack.
Section 3- Vampires Will Never Hurt You
The F is a stake surrounded by a pool of blood; background of the sky.
Section 4- Drowning Lessons
The F holds a pool of tears that were shed; background of skyscrapers and sky.
Section 5- Our Lady of Sorrows.
F is dark blue with a knife and the words "It is time to die." Background of the Twin Towers.
Section 6- Headfirst For Halos
F is green with pill bottle and blue and red pills. "THINK HAPPY THOUGHTS" Background is buildings and sky.
Section 7- Skylines and Turnstiles
F is made of smoke/fire and "Tell Me WHERE WE GO FROM HERE" Background of buildings.
Section 8- Early Sunsets Over Monroeville
F is a sunset. Background of buildings.
Section 9- This Is the Best Day Ever
F is yellow with the words "STARLESS EYES" and "With help from cold machines".
Background of more buildings.
Dedication Page reads (I know it's long, but stay with me)
Bullets
This picture takes place one minute before the attack.
My Chemical Romance was formed a week after 9/11. The song Skylines and Turnstiles is about what Gerard Way witnessed that morning. Each "F" represents a song off of their first album.

This picture is dedicated to the victims, survivors, and witnesses of 9/11.
For the ones who lost their children, parents, siblings, and lovers.
For the ones who jumped to their deaths.
For the ones who were on the plane.
For those who were on the ground.
For the citizens who watched 2,996 people die in vain.
We love you, we miss you, and we remember you.
You will not be forgotten
