A Wave in Her Pocket, Brian Pinkney

Today's not so vintage children's book, A Wave in Her Pocket, has beautiful scratchboard illustrations done by Brian Pinkney. His distinctive illustrations  are full of movement and expression. I don't think I've featured a book by Mr. Pinkney yet, so it's high time as he is an excellent artist. Pinkney developed his scratchboard technique while studying at the School of Visual Arts, where he received a Master of Fine Arts in illustration. He has illustrated many books and won numerous awards. His illustrations have been in newspapers and national magazines. To read more about Brian Pinkney, go to his website here.
