Illustrator Jerry Pinkney

John Henry, 1999, by Jerry Pinkney
I just got the news that a traveling exhibit of Jerry Pinkney's illustrations has opened at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It won't be there long, so if you're in the area, take this opportunity to see his complex watercolor paintings up close

and learn more about Jerry's experienced approach to picture book illustration.

Mirandy and Brother Wind, 1997

In conjunction with the exhibit, the Free Library of Philadelphia is hosting Drawing on the Reverse Side: The Art and Life of Jerry Pinkney, and will host the man himself on July 15. Make plans to visit before the summer is out!
