the brief wondrous life of oscar wao

I recently read the brief wondrous life of Oscar Wao, and loved it. 
The book is about a family from the Dominican Republic who have emigrated to the US, who are followed by a curse, or fukú, or as Lola, the daughter of the family puts it, maybe its just life.
This is the first of several self-initiated book covers for my portfolio, where I want to try and experiment a bit more with how I use photoshop and mixed media.
