Harlem's Little Blackbird














Oh my lucky stars! I'm so pleased to share a peak of the soon to be released picture book I illustrated, Harlem's Little Blackbird: The Story of Florence Mills. I'll say more closer to the actually release, for now I just want to thank the author Rene Watson for sharing this powerful story. Thank you to the book editor Suzy Capozzi and art director Ellice Lee for even considering me as a potential illustrator for this book. Of course thank you Steven Malk my agent for pretty much helping me make my dreams come true. Lastly thank you Florence Mills for inspiring us all, I'm so proud to have been able to contribute in the sharing of her story to young readers.
Here is a link to an interview I did with the art director Ellice Lee and our collaboration:
