Kim Hindman, Artist and Owner of 10 Digit Press

Kim Hindman is an artist and the owner of 10 Digit Press. She previously worked with Tanya Eby, editor of NEVERTHELESS WE PERSISTED, on the cover for IN THE GARDEN ROOM. Her work is delicate, beautiful and haunting--sometimes all at once. She frequently draws inspiration from nature for her designs.

Here is what she says creating the cover for NEVERTHELESS WE PERSISTED

"Yanked, mowed, trampled, and pulled only to be left with as little as a bit of root or wafting seed, the lowly dandelion makes its way back stronger, to once again feed the bees and give life to side walk cracks. What could be more under appreciated and yet, ever so persistent."

Here is how the piece developed, originally sized for the future ebook cover and then cropped for audio. First, the editor sent Kim the script for inspiration.

She then came up with the concept of the dandelion to represent persistence.

Notice how she captured every stage in the life cycle of a dandelion:
