I love children’s books; I collect them - for the stories and definitely the illustration. Many I purchase myself, and others come to me by way of the special people in my life. What I love even more than the books, are the inscriptions people leave for me, like this one, from my dear friend, Nat... I read this, written almost 10 years ago and I have to just sit with her words... in gratitude and reflection... So many thoughts to tend to... #harriettubman #kadirnelson  #childrensbooks #reflection #giftsofspirit

If you plant a carrot seed..... a carrot will grow. If you plant a cabbage seed..... a cabbage will grow. But what happens if you plant a seed of kindness.....or selfishness?🤔
🌱💕
This book from award winning author-illustrator Kadir Nelson is such a gorgeous story showing how we can choose to spread joy & generosity or selfishness & anger.
🌱💞
There are few words in this book but the beautiful illustrations very clearly show us what is happening. This is a fabulous book for sharing with children & allowing them to tell you what they think the characters on each page are saying - the expressions & body language say it all.
🌱💞
Such a lovely story with a beautiful message shown in a gentle & humourous way. This story will resonate with adults & children & hopefully show us all how we can choose to act with generosity or selfishness & what the repercussions will be.......I know what I would choose 🙌💕 🌱💕
Which seed will you plant today?

I first became aware of illustrator Kadir Nelson ( @kadirnelson ) back in 2003 when author Debbie Allen gave a talk at the LA Times Festival of Books and she and Kadir did a signing afterwards. Over the years, I have grown to be a real fan, always excited to see whatever he creates next whether it be a "New Yorker Magazine" cover, an album cover, a U.S. postage stamp, a fine art painting, or another children's book. If I could choose two words to describe the power of his work, I would say it exudes "quiet dignity." .

This past weekend I was able to appreciate Kadir's work up close when I went to the San Diego History Center in Balboa Park to see the original art for his latest children's book, "Blue Sky White Stars." What a treat to get to see this collection of oil paintings all together from this marvelous book. While my photographs can't do them justice, I took some overall shots and some close-ups (I love seeing the technique up close). .

If you find yourself in San Diego over the next month or so, do drop in and see Kadir's amazing work! . .

We are the Ship
By Kadir Nelson
Grade Level: 2-3

The story of Negro League baseball is the story of gifted athletes and determined owners; of racial discrimination and international sportsmanship; of fortunes won and lost; of triumphs and defeats on and off the field. It is a perfect mirror for the social and political history of black America in the first half of the twentieth century. But most of all, the story of the Negro Leagues is about hundreds of unsung heroes who overcame segregation, hatred, terrible conditions, and low pay to do the one thing they loved more than anything else in the world: play ball.

Using an "Everyman" player as his narrator, Kadir Nelson tells the story of Negro League baseball from its beginnings in the 1920s through its decline after Jackie Robinson crossed over to the majors in 1947. The voice is so authentic, you will feel as if you are sitting on dusty bleachers listening intently to the memories of a man who has known the great ballplayers of that time and shared their experiences.

@smithsoniannpg and #kadirnelson is one of the many reasons I’m #takingthebus to #dc1018pcca with the good folk at @perrycountyartspa
I already knew I liked Kadir Nelson, but the illustrations in Moses by Carole Boston Weatherford are works of art. Don’t you agree? This picture book concentrates on Harriet Tubman’s spiritual biography and relationship with God. It’s a beautiful and harrowing read.  Obviously Marian is too young to understand the content when I read it to her, but it’s a must-read for 7-10 year olds .

I was immediately drawn to Kadir Nelson’s portrait of Henrietta Lacks as I walked into the National Portrait Gallery this evening.

Henry’s Freedom Box. Civil War book 1...
I love picture books for all ages - yes, even middle grades. A gorgeous snapshot (Kadir Nelson’s art is amazing) of a horrific but incredible experience of one man all boiled down  to a few pages. Not too graphic but paints the bleak picture of slavery setting the stage for the details of the war.

"You're a shining star/No matter who you are/Shining bright to see/What you could truly be" From Shining Star by Earth Wind & Fire. Image: Maurice White by Kadir Nelson

Today I want to celebrate and acknowledge all the creative artists (across all disciplines) I've been so fortunate to work with in my life. When I was a kid I loved looking at Earth Wind & Fire album covers. I was so inspired by their uplifting imagery and lyrics. Turning fifty this week has made me more appreciative of all the extraordinary people who have given me hope and meaning over the years. Thank you all. 
Have a great weekend. Enjoy your life! Do more art!

This book could have had no storey at all, & I would have bought it. The illustrations are just so pretty & charming! Some of Sassy's fellow dancers thought she was too tall, that her get were too big. They were sure that Sassy wouldn't go far in the auditions. She thought they might be right, But decided to listen to her uncle & turned these features into assets. Dancing in the Wings by Debbie Allen & illustrated by Kadir Nelson.

2019 is going to be an amazing year, y’all 😳 @kwamealexander is coming out the gate swinging by publishing books like this under his very own imprint Versify. @kadirnelson did the cover of course. How beautiful is this artwork? 😍
Originally performed for ESPN's The Undefeated, this poem is a love letter to black life in the United States. It highlights the unspeakable trauma of slavery, the faith and fire of the civil rights movement, and the grit, passion, and perseverance of some of the world's greatest heroes. The text is also peppered with references to the words of Martin Luther King, Jr., Langston Hughes, Gwendolyn Brooks, and others, offering deeper insights into the accomplishments of the past, while bringing stark attention to the endurance and spirit of those surviving.

I love the work of painter Kadir Nelson. He captures all the splendor and glory of Negro League Baseball. Here is his painting of Wilbur “Bullet” Rogan who played for the KC Monarchs from 1920-1938 and inducted into the hall of fame in 1998. He played every position including pitcher, outfield, and batting clean up. #negroleagues #mlb #baseball #kadirnelson

Today started off with disappointment, but instead of feeling remorse and anger, I opted to remind myself of my strength and that the right door for new opportunity will present itself at the right time. Until then, I’ll continue to move with grace and elegance and sip from my favorite cup of tea. 🎨 by #kadirnelson •

The #newyorker cover of this week is so beautiful. It captures everything of a summer in a dreamy #nyc and it looks like a James Van Der Zee photo (one with those impossibly elegant and effortlessly stylish women and men) with vivid colors and sharp drawing lines. Kadir Nelson is very very talented. #kadirnelson #newyorkspirit #epitomeofchic  #oilpaintings #jamesvanderzee #harlemrenaissance
Mama Titi is a story inspired by the life of Wangari Muta Maathai, the first African woman to win a Nobel Peace Prize in 2004.🍁🍁Wangari planted trees one by one to refresh her spirit. When the women came to her for help with their families, she told them to do the same. Soon the countryside was filled with trees.  Kenya was strong once more. Wangari had changed her country, tree by tree. 🍁🍁

I’ve seen far too much of that Australian cartoon of Serena Williams being shared, today I want to use my social media to share art and illustrations that celebrate the beauty, grace and diversity of black and brown women.
While I’m all for calling out ugliness and racism, sometimes it’s important to champion those who spread positivity and create empowering imagery. I encourage everyone to check out the artists shown here and considering sharing some of their work this week to help lend some balance.

Thunder Rose was one of the inspirations for my #heroine #cleverlylistenbee. I wanted to take the same #spunk and #grit to give birth to Cleverly. Similar to the way Rose came into the world with the “power of lightning and thunder in her blood,” Cleverly held the magic of being able to communicate with all the animals in all the lands (and most especially, the bees!). #jerdinenolen is such a phenomenal  writer  and #kadirnelson’s artwork is amazing. #blackheroinesmatter #girlgotspunk #bestbookever

Two cool people and ...me.😁 @mossdorothy and I had the pleasure earlier this week of meeting @kadirnelson and @jungmiwha @smithsoniannpg in front of Kadir’s portrait of #HenriettaLacks. Yesterday I received the #september 10 issue of @newyorkermag and those people look familiar! 🔎 In the magazine Kadir is quoted saying “The main subject is dressed all in whites, sitting in the shade next to a beautiful woman, and enjoying a lime-green popsicle. This dude is the embodiment of cool. I don’t think I’m as cool, but I knew what I was aiming for, so I posed for the photo reference.” Right. Trust me, he and Jungmiwha Bullock are very 😎 and also amazingly talented and wonderfully personable people. It was an honor and a privilege to meet them⭐️#savoringsummer ⛱ #portraits #selfportrait #kadirnelson 🎨#jungmiwhabullock #nationalportraitgallery #newyorkermagazine #portraitureiscool #portrait #painting #contemporaryart #newyork #centralpark
