Pinkney was born in the Germantown section of Philadelphia in 1939, and began drawing at the age of four. As a child, he had great difficulty with dyslexia in elementary school. However, his love of and talent for drawing was useful in elevating his self-esteem and gaining the attention of his teachers and classmates. 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, (now University of the Arts) where he met his wife Gloria. 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.
Pinkney’s illustrative work often incorporates African American motifs. His works include Patricia C. McKissack‘s Goin’ Someplace Special, a story of segregation in mid-century South.ssion to further public knowledge and appreciation for the art of illustration.”
Pinkney was thrilled to learn that I had received two lifetime achievement awards for my work. The first is the 2016 Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, for making “a substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children.” The second is the Coretta Scott King-Virginia Hamilton Award for Lifetime Achievement, recognizing books that “explore cultural experiences and ethnic identity” with “insight, skill and distinctive style.” Quite an honor!
He was named the Norman Rockwell Museum’s Artist Laureate, an award “bestowed to noted contemporary practitioners for their accomplishments in the field, and dedication to the Museum’s mission. less
