Do you know Tyler Gordon?
The 15-year-old artist and author's new book, 'We Can, Portraits of Power', shows his brilliant portraits of people who have inspired, influenced, and encouraged him to be brave.
He discusses how he became a painter and with each profile explains the characteristics each person profiled possess that provided him with inspiration.
Following in the footsteps of @gordoncjamesfineart , @jerrypinkneystudio @floyd.cooper.4 , and @brycollier, we hope to see Tyler Goron write and illustrate many more books sharing his artwork and stories with young readers.
I would like to credit Dr. Cooke and her 12 year-old son Roman for suggesting this title.
