“Deep Kiss”

The form of “Deep Kiss” is drawn from two cent signs locked together. I had been reading about the economic downturn of 2009 and the collapse of the housing market. The collapse of the economy had a significant impact on myself. I was trying to make an amalgamation of the saying “nickeled and dimed” and Al Pachino's famous kiss of death in the film "The Godfather". One’s fate of debt and sealed with a kiss.
