E.B. Lewis's interests in fine arts, illustration, and art education led him to coin the term 'artistrator' to describe his work. As a children's illustrator, Lewis has contributed beautiful watercolors to 'The Other Side' by Jacqueline Woodson, 'Fire on the Mountain' by Jane Kurtz, 'Down the Road' by Alice Schertle, and many other titles. Lewis's illustrations, which have been described as 'simply stunning' and 'uniquely captivating' have earned him the Coretta Scott King Award and a Caldecott Honor.
