It's Illustration Tuesday. Jerry Pinkney has been illustrating children's books for many years. He brings his African American heritage and his storytelling abilities together in the art he creates. Read his brief bio, here, in which he discusses his work, then visit his website, here. In the video below, he talks about his latest book, The Lion & the Mouse, and how he approaches the storytelling aspect of illustrating. His enjoyment of making picture books comes through clearly when he talks about the process.
