Christian Robinson

From a very young age, Christian Robinson loved to draw. Growing up in Los Angeles, Robinson used art as way to interact with the world around him. Today, you can find his art work in picture books, on clothing and apparel, even on Sesame Street! Robinson has received multiple awards for his illustrations and collaborations in children’s books; in 2022 his work on “Nina: A Story of Nina Simone” was awarded a Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor. Robinson’s truly original illustration style is vibrant, lively and special—I hope you will feel the same way as you explore the beauty of the world brought to us through his eyes.
