All Kinds of Strong






Is there an illustrator or artist that doesn't dream of illustrating a children's book? Probably, but it's always been a dream of mine and I finally had the privilege of illustrating one. The book is titled "All Kinds of Strong" written by Sharon Reiss Baker and published by Amazon. It's a wonderful story about a little girl named Sadie Rose, smaller than most, that has a very big and a very strong heart. It takes place in a Jewish farming community. It's also about community and what it means to live in one. You can read more about it here: http://www.kriswiltse.com/book.html
Check it out here. Don't forget to buy a copy for your children or grandchildren!




Here are a few illustrations from the book:

  2. Thank you! I've done block printing for many years for illustration. But these were created in photoshop to look similar. You can see more block print illustrations here: http://www.kriswiltse.com/illustration.html
