Bob Goff Love Does Dropcap

I am in the middle of re-reading my favorite book "Love Does" by Bob Goff, and I wanted to make a drop cap book cover that you could still tell what book it was just by looking at it. The book is a narrative of what I would call essays, and it is nonfiction with more abstract concepts. 

I liked the idea of using elements of the original book cover and simplifying them to bring attention to the drop cap. Here are my original brainstorm ideas a few sketches, however I didn't push these as far because I knew I wanted to use balloons. 

I wanted the drop cap to be a knock-out of the background so the colors of the balloons could make it look like they were part of the same world. I had a hard time with plotting points and was hoping to get some feedback on the actual letterform.
