From The Vault: Possess Me Not - 2004

I really like the portrait here--the angle, the colors--and it works well within the design.

The only problem I do have here is the choice of color for the title--I'm sure I went with red to match the background, but since it (and the author's name) are on the woman's back, to me it looks a little too much like its a bloody brand, which gives it (to me) an unpleasant, if completely unintentional, feel. I should have gone with virtually any other color, if only to stay away from that look.

I think I still have the layered file of this piece; maybe I need to go back into it and fix such an obvious mistake, just to see if it works better.
