Jerry Pinkney

[USA] (b 1939)

"Jerry Pinkney was born in the Germantown section of Philadelphia in 1939, and began drawing at the age of four. (...) In junior high school his work was noticed by cartoonist John Liney, who encouraged him to pursue the career of an artist. (..) Pinkney concentrated on commercial art at the Dobbins Vocational School as a teen, and was granted a full scholarship to the Philadelphia Museum College of Art ; (...) Upon graduation, he held a variety of positions in the field of design and illustration, including as a greeting card designer. Eventually he founded Kaleidoscope Studios with fellow artists, and two years later he opened his own Jerry Pinkney Studio and focused on illustrating children’s books.. (..) later he moved to New York. Pinkney has always had an interest in diversity and many of his children’s books celebrate multicultural and African-American themes. Pinkney still lives in New York and has been an art professor at the University of Delaware, Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and State University of New York at Buffalo. "
