Kerosene and Fireflies

I chose my friend's book of poetry 'Kerosene and Fireflies' as my project cover. His poems are evocative and powerfull, and the title perfectly captures the whistfulness and unmet desire of the words. The current cover though is not abstract enough I felt, so I played around with some geometric shapes. That wasn't the right feel so I kept sketching images and eventually hit on something that looked good involving fire and wings.

The result has the feeling of being consumed and lifted all at once. I like it and so did the poet when I showed him.
