This is a terrific composition. Without the eye and the corner of a smile, the silhouetted ship would simply be sailing into a squall. With those anthropomorphised features, the sky becomes a terrifyingly vast malevolence, teeming with anger and violence. I love the essentially two-tone colour palette, and the typeface is a strong counterpoint to such a brooding, organic deisgn.
