"When I was born, the doctors told my mom that if I did survive I would have lots of health problems and be blind, deaf and severely mentally delayed . . . Boy were they wrong!" .Tyler Gordon Fourteen-year-old Tyler Gordon's journey from a regular kid growing up in San Jose, California, to a nationally recognized artist wasn.t without its challenges. For the first six years of his life he was deaf, which led to a stutter ? and bullying. Art gave him a creative outlet for his pain. Then, after painting a portrait of Kamala Harris and posting it on social media, he received a call from the vice president herself! Soon his art was everywhere. He had an interview with the The Today Show . He was the youngest artist featured in the Beverly Center. His portrait of LeBron James graced the cover of TIME Magazine. And that was only the beginning! Here is a debut picture book by Tyler Gordon, featuring his bold paintings of over 30 icons.musicians, artists, writers, civils rights leaders, sports legends, change-makers, record-setters, and more.alongside short explanations of how these people inspire him. If Tyler can make art and follow his dreams, you can, too. We all can.
