While usually resistant to this kind of project, painter Peter Illig admits, "I was knocked out by her work, and so I agreed." Artist Vincent Comparetto concurs: "The idea of pairing a bunch of artists with a poet can be a disaster, but in the case of Hilary, you can tell by the way she writes that she, too, is a visual artist. Her prose elicits imagery."
