Guy Wolek was our illustrator for a series of Children’s books we published with Harvest House and he was fantastic. We wanted a diverse set of characters with realistic and interesting scenery, and his artwork was outstanding. We would highly recommend Guy to anyone who is looking for quality artwork

Fearfully And Wonderfully Made
I worked with Guy on my first children's book, Fearfully And Wonderfully Made. What I liked about working with Guy is that he was a mentor to me on this project. Here I was a brand new author learning this industry. I had no idea where to start with the illustrations for the book or how to develop characters for the story. Guy spoke with me and was very informative on how to illustrate a book. I took his recommendations and applied them. He was not just providing art work for me for a nominal fee, he guided me through and through to help me develop a sound and quality book. I really appreciate and value his time and work that he put into my book. Every person that has come in contact with my book has given high praise about the illustrations and design. He guided me in the right direction for the designing of the book which allowed me to have a voice in how I wanted each page to speak to the reader. I loved that! Guy has such great wisdom and I am glad that we had the opportunity to partner together for my first book. He is forever connected to me for the books to come.

As a new author, working with Guy Wolek illustrations has been an amazing experience. He involved me throughout the whole project from developing characters to how to make a scene come alive. His expertise & creative genius brought the “WOW Factor” to each book. Everyone who sees the illustrations are just in awe of the detail and beauty!
I would recommend Guy Wolek Illustrations to everyone especially to new authors.
We love Guy Wolek Illustrations!
Mango in a Tree, Empress in the Place, and Ten Afros Up On Top.
Guy helped me not only produce the illustrations for three children's books, but he developed my characters as well. I met Guy in 2014 when I had an idea for my first children's book. Guy was gracious enough to help me on my journey despite his demanding schedule. The blessing of Guy was that he helped me to understand parts of children's book journey as well. Guy has a knack of getting into the mind of the characters in my books. He asks great questions like what was the character thinking in this scene? And by goodness, Guy would find a way to draw that impression of the character's face. Those type questions made all the difference. Guy is also very diligent in meeting his client's needs. Guy has always been transparent with me about his schedule and when he would be able to deliver illustrations to me. And it goes without saying that Guy has a real gift for art. You are not going to find too many illustrators that are going to be as good as him. The skill that I like the most about Guy's art is his ability to create facial expressions. I hope to complete the final books of my book series with Guy.

The Halloween Santa.
Guy Wolek can take an author’s words and develop illustrations that express the emotions and actions of the characters to fit one’s story line. After illustrating over 600 children’s books, Guy has experience few artists can match. I was fortunate to find a fabulous illustrator for my first picture book, The Halloween Santa.
I can't thank you enough for the wonderful illustrations! My book just sings!
Hear, O Little One: In the Morning and in the Evening.
It has truly been an honor and a privilege to work with Guy on our new board book, “Hear, O Little One: In the Morning and in the Evening.” It was such an enjoyable experience. Guy was willing to listen to our ideas for illustrations and then he took our words and created beautiful depictions that took our breath away. He really made our words come alive in ways that we never thought possible.
Brush Your Teeth!
Being new to the book publishing industry, I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Guy Wolek. Guy’s expertise in the field really helped navigate me through the publishing process. His illustrations are phenomenal, and I was very impressed with how he took the care to add in the smallest of details in his work. Guy is very easy to work with, and I greatly appreciated his professionalism.
Circle Of Friends
Guy Wolek was absolutely wonderful to work with. I am a first-time writer, so much of this process was very new to me. He was communicative at every turn and very professional. Guy helped me fill in all of the knowledge gaps throughout this entire process. On top of all of that he turned out a beautiful set of illustrations that helped bring my vision to reality. I would recommend to any writer in need of illustrations to use Guy. 10 out of 10. Thank you Guy!
The Little Creature
This is a letter of recommendation for Guy Wolek and his work. I hired Guy to help me do a children’s book. Guy worked with me graciously as I sent him my manuscript. He seems to me to have the ability to see what I see and draw it out on paper his work its first-class, and it was excellent, to say the least. Everyone who sees the book comments more on Guy’s work than my story lol. If you’re thinking of using Guy I recommend it.
No More Noisy Nights
As an author of picture books the right illustrator is important. I'm always curious to see what my words inspire and what the illustrator chooses to add to the narrative in their drawings. It is the cover that calls to the reader. Once they pick up the book they may read a few pages, but they will drawn in by the illustrations. So when I received the first preliminary sketches that Guy Wolek did for No More Noisy Nights I was thrilled. He had captured the personality of Jackson, the ghost, the boogey monster, and the pixie perfectly. The details of the underground home he created begged readers to explore it. While we worked through the editor, Guy was collaborative and made changes when suggested so that we could all have a book we were proud of. If you ever see No More Noisy Nights face out on a shelf I know you'll want to pick it up and peek inside!
Trust And Glorify
I give a special thanks to Guy Wolek, for the stellar cover work and for all of the wonderful illustrations inside the new book! It was an absolute pleasure and privilege working with him, as he is highly regarded, by many. The illustrations are so lively, and deeply crafted, and tell such a compelling story! His responsiveness was also very much appreciated, for the project's critical timing. I strongly recommend him and the top-shelf abilities that he offers, to all who are looking for a truly professional contribution.
