BiographyEdit

Early LifeEdit

Pinkney was born in the Germantown section of the city of Philadelphia on December 22, 1939 to Willie Mae and James Pinkney.[7] Pinkney was the middle child in a family of five siblings.[8] Pinkney struggled in school due to dyslexia, but excelled at drawing, even at a young age.[9] During Pinkney's youth, his mother encouraged him to develop his skills by enrolling him in art classes, but Pinkney's father didn't consider art a sustainable career until Pinkney grew older.[10]

CareerEdit

During his early teens, Pinkney worked at a local newspaper stand, where he would pass the time by drawing city life.[9] Pinkney's talent caught the eye of customer and cartoonist John Liney, who worked on the Henry comic strips.[7] Liney showed Pinkney how artistry could be used for commercial purposes.[11]

Pinkney attended the Murrell Dobbins Vocational High School for his secondary education and met his future wife, Gloria Jean Pinkney, during this time.[12] Pinkney graduated from Murrell Dobbins in 1957 and was granted a full scholarship to the Philadelphia Museum College of Art (now University of the Arts).[13][14] Pinkney only attended the Philadelphia College of Art for a few years, leaving to start a family with wife Gloria.[15]

In 1960, Pinkney began working for The Rust Craft Greeting Card Company in Dedham, Massachusetts.[16] Pinkney later worked at Barker-Black Studio, where he illustrated his first picture book in collaboration with Joyce Cooper Arkhurst called, The Adventures of Spider: West African Folk Tales (1964).[17] He, along with a two other artists, opened Kaleidoscope Studio a few years later.[18] Pinkney opened his own freelance studio, Jerry Pinkney Studios, in 1968.[17]

During the 1970s, Pinkney worked on the Black Heritage Stamp Series for the United States Postal Service.[19] During the 1980s Pinkney began to receive additional recognition for his work, including a Coretta Scott King Award for his collaboration with author Patricia McKissack on Mirandy and Brother Wind (1989).[20] Pinkney also collaborated with the National Geographic Magazine[21] and the National Park Service on the topic of the Underground Railroad.[22]

Pinkney has also worked as an educator, teaching at colleges and universities like the University of Delaware,[23] the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York and the University at Buffalo, in Buffalo, New York.[24]

Professional MembershipsEdit

FamilyEdit

Jerry Pinkney and Gloria Jean Pinkney have four children: Troy, Brian, Scott, and Myles.[26] Brian Pinkney and his wife Andrea Davis Pinkney also write books for children.[27] The other Pinkney children, including Jerry and Gloria Pinkney's six grandchildren, all participate in the arts, which Gloria calls a continuation of “the Pinkney tradition.”[28]

Pinkney lives in Croton-on-Hudson in New York with his wife Gloria, where has worked out of his freelance studio, Jerry Pinkney Studio, since 1971.[17]

Art Style & ThemesEdit

Art StyleEdit

Pinkney got his start drawing in pencil[29] and his early works were black and white productions.[30] Currently, Pinkney uses a combination of watercolors and pencils for the majority of his work, along with other materials, such as, "pastel[s], color pencils, and Cray-Pas"[14] In an interview, he stated watercolors are his "medium of choice."[29] Pinkney's "intricate detail" is considered "rare" for a person who uses watercolors.[31]

ThemesEdit

Pinkney researches the subjects of his works for accuracy, such as the dress of the characters involved and the time periods.[31] Pinkney also uses live models for establishing character poses.[30] Pinkney has stated he likes to draw animals the most and to give these characters human features.[14]

Many of Pinkney's titles are on diverse themes and topics, such as African American history, and Pinkney has stated his stories are a way for him to "revisit" his childhood.[29] His recent book, A Place to Land: Martin Luther King Jr and the Speech That Inspired a Nation (2019), portrays Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1963 March on Washington "I Have A Dream" speech.

A number of Pinkney's works retell Aesop Fables, such as The Grasshopper & The Ants (2015) and The Lion and the Mouse (2009).
