Really cool and nice solid design - it's easily customizable. Like how you're experimenting texture.

Very nice! Great solid typography. Love the clouds. One picky little thing: scoot the bottom left type block over so that it's the same distance away from the line rule as the right side type block. Wondering too if you might try to have the far right cloud bleed off the page.

Love the typography -- great knockout on title, creates a hip screen print effect :)

I like the clouds, they remind me of a child's drawing!
