Growing up in New Jersey, Frank Morrison began developing his own style through ‘R.I.P’ art scenes that brought him considerable street recognition and local acclaim. But it wasn’t until he visited the Louvre Museum in Paris with his dancing group, that he realized painting was his true creative path. His talent and hard work paid off with over 20 illustrated children’s books, including the Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe Award winner, Jazzy Miz Mozetta and the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor books, Little Melba and her Big Trombone and Let the Children March. Most recently, Frank was a Society of Illustrators’ Original Art Silver Medal Honoree for The Roots of Rap. Clients include National Geographics Kids, Dial, and Simon & Schuster Books. Awards include New York Public Library’s Best Books of the Year, NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work, Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor, and Anti-Defamation League’s February Book of the Month.
