Summary:
Illustrator and educator Jerry Pinkney was born December 22, 1939 in Philadelphia. Pinkney began drawing when he was four years old, although he struggled with undiagnosed dyslexia throughout the first forty years of his life. He received a full scholarship to Philadelphia College of Art before marrying his long-term partner, Gloria Jean. Pinkney worked for both Rust Craft Greeting Card Company and Barker-Black in Boston, Massachusetts before illustrating his first children's book, The Adventures of Spider: West African Folk Tales by Joyce Cooper Arkhurst in 1964, and opening his own studio in Croton-on-Hudson, New York in 1971. Pinkney has illustrated over 100 books, including collaborations with Julius Lester, Gloria Jean Pinkney and Robert D. San Souci. He was the first African American recipient of the Caldecott Medal for The Lion & the Mouse in 2009. Pinkney taught at numerous universities and served on the National Council of the Arts.
