Emily Dickinson- B&W/Poem Illustration

The next illustration in my B&W/Poem series. I've been fond of Emily Dickinson's work since I was young. I started with the black and white portrait drawn in Adobe Illustrator Draw on my iPad (Based on the Daguerreotype here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emily_Dickinson#/media/File:Black-white_photograph_of_Emily_Dickinson2.png ) . I brought that into Illustrator and cleaned up the design and placed the poem words, which were manipulated using mesh envelopes. The poems are "Because I could not stop for Death" on her face and "I'm Nobody! Who are you?" on her neck.

Thanks for looking!
