This piece came from researching the concept of toxic masculinity and its effects on mental health and the resulting image is a representation of this phenomenon. The left, darker side, is a direct representation of the negativity derived for a toxic attitude towards mental health. The phrase ‘she’ll be right mate’ is in response to the ‘deal with it you’re self’ attitude.

The right, lighter side, out of context has a darker sign with ‘help me’ but the idea of asking for help in context is a positive one, thus this side is a representation of transformation and acceptance.
