The watercolors look awesome! I really like the people.

Personally, I want to see more darks for contrast, though.

I wouldn't have thought to tell a Robert Johnson story with pastel watercolors, but you pull it off wonderfully. I agree that there could be more contrast. But I really enjoy how you took snippets of lyrics from different songs and wove them into your own narrative.

Beautiful. The page layouts are awesome as well. I agree with the contrast thing a little, but I think it's mainly the heavy black border that has me yearning for contrast. That's just a minor detail...really well done.
