Memoirs of a Geisha

A prospective artwork for the Memoirs of a Geisha bookcover. I wanted the masks to portray the acting and performance that the geisha provide also showing the way that they hide their true feelings. The face of the geisha shows the beauty. The koi karp represent the true love in the story and the swimming through troubled waters. I have used the same typeface as the original book because i like the brush strokes and fluent movement alike the water. Would love to hear feedback. The grey line around the edge is only to show the proportions, as white on white can get lost, it is not on the artwork itself.
