In Watermelon Sugar

I thought the hand drawn words would compliment Brautigan's style. If I were to do it again I'd leave out the watermelon seeds. No one needs to be hit on the head with ideas. It feels like a cliche. But it was the last element I used so it had to stay. I carved the seed shape from the eraser end of a pencil and used it as a stamp and then I drew around them a bit with pen. All that work to find out it was superfluous.
