yay! you used "retrospect"! that makes me happy =]
i use it in conversation some times & my friends look at me weird. lol.
anyway...i really love the watercolor wash on the back. in my opinion, you should just nix the hood, so as to not cover up your awesome artwork, but if you do want to keep it, i agree with melyssa_marie...a white hood seems like it would go nicely.
