How a boy became an artist

Jarrett J. Krosoczka is a children's book author and illustrator who created the Lunch Lady series of graphic novels - and he has a powerful story of his own.

The child of a single-parent heroin addict, he was brought up by his grandparents, and his best friends, he says, were characters in books. 

His story about how he became an artist and an author was performed at Tedx. It's a powerful tale of the importance of creativity and imagination. 

Watch it, and keep a box of Kleenex handy.

I found this story enlightening because an artist that many might think was too young to be a mature artist has in fact the learning, practice and experience of a much older man. Jarrett J. Krosoczka celebrates his life and the people who helped him in his life. His positive, loving attitude is inspiring.
