A Visit With Illustrator Kimberly Eve!

In order to accommodate author Kevin Hull's schedule, the announced schedule for WITS Podcast December 31, 2010, has undergone a change.  We hope to be able to bring you that interview in the near future.

December Podcast Schedule Change:

December, 31, 2010, New Years Eve, WITS will offer a written question and answer interview with expert illustrator, Kimberly Eve.  If you have questions for our guest that you would like answered concerning illustrations for books, please send an email to WITS authors' assistant Vonnie Faroqui.

Kimberly Eve, also known as Jaia, is a many times published illustrator and book designer. Her color book covers are still being used to market best-sellers for Ash Tree Publishing/ Susun Weed, in Woodstock, NY.

Kimberly most recently finished cover art for three books by Juliette de Bairacli Levy, "The Grandmother of Herbalism". Since the late 90's, Juliette's books have come back in to print, all sporting Kimberly's covers.

Kimberly Eve also renders clear and delightful spot illustrations to accompany text. She worked closely with anthropologist and best-selling author Vicki Noble, to translate 150 photographs of ancient art in to accurate black and white line drawings in The Double Goddess, published by Inner Traditions, in VT. Kimberly's styles range from realism to fantasy and she has experience with drawing cartoons, as in the book Aquabliss, and accurate life drawings, as in Spanish Mountain Life. Her versatility in rendering compliments many writing styles and author's visions.

Kimberly Eve attended The School of Visual Arts in New York City and worked in the graphic arts and animation worlds for many years before becoming a free-lance illustrator. She has been an editing, PR, and publishing assistant. She understands and can work within the entire pre-production and printing process. She works to enhance a books sale-ability through attractive and eye-catching art.

In addition to her expertise as an illustrator, Kimberly is a pet portrait artist, a Renaissance Fair performance artist, and face painter. For samples of Kimberly’s work visit her illustration website.
