Books on Film: Kadir Nelson on CBS Sunday Morning

The good old CBS Sunday Morning show. Every once in a while, they do a great feature on a children’s book creator.

Last Sunday, they returned to the studio of our current Caldecott Medalist (and my personal all-time favorite Drake album cover artist) Kadir Nelson. During the interview, he talks about a new painting he’s working on, winning the Caldecott (only to have the award ceremony cancelled/postponed), and what’s next for all of us.

It’s good.
