Illustrator Betsy Everitt truly enjoyed her first-time collaboration with design firm Be Design. With art direction from Brian Donahue, Betsy created some outstanding visuals to accompany the book excerpt in Macalester Today from chef and award-winning writer Amy Thielen's personal memoir, ‘Girl with a Knife’.
So perhaps not surprisingly, Betsy playfully inserted one very sharp kitchen knife into each illustration, which was juxtaposed nicely against her signature whimsical approach. As usual, Betsy brought a bountiful use of color making the images veritably dance off the page. The richness of the illustrations was the perfect complement to the richness of the author-described experiences.
