I love how she combined space with the eye. Both are such important elements of the story. Sara, you made my week!
Some of my family members (mostly my parents) have been asking for a printed copy of my books . So I decided to follow in Sara's footsteps and design a cover for my book and print out a few copies. Thanks to my sister for providing me with the pictures. I told her to send me some of her high resolution, professional pictures, but wouldn't say why. Fortunately once I was done she agreed to let me share the result.

I had so much fun incorporating symbolism into the cover. The straight lines, black and white coloring, and blue eye, all have meaning. I'm so happy with the result.
