Dara Rybalov Wins The Cover Contest

Congratulations to Dara Rybalov, winner of the cover design cover contest.  Although I liked the artwork and creativity of all the entries, I felt Dara’s design best captured the spirit of the book.  I can’t wait to share it with you!  Coated With Fur:  A Vet’s Life will be published in April.      

From a young age, Dara displayed an avid interest in books and art, so it was only natural that she combine the two in cover design.  She enjoys using her creativity to visually portray the messages contained within each book.  Dara’s creative process in enhanced by her two Siamese cats, Ming and LeMei who insist she take regular breaks from designing to play fetch. 

I want to thank all the artists for the interest, energy and ability your brought to this project.  Your creativity is truly inspiring!
