"He Ain't Heavy" is officially the longest selling, most recognized work of art in black art history. It has been featured in movies and on television. I have many photos from folk who have tattooed it on their bodies. Organizations, companies, and individuals have asked for limited licenses to use "He Ain't Heavy" to promote what they are doing. It has become a symbol for social responsibility.

I created it to express this idea: Whoever you are, wherever you are in life, you have the ability to reach back and help someone else.  You are obligated to do it.  

I am so very proud to have created this image more than 44 years ago now.  Children who grew up with this hanging on the walls of their home are now ordering lithographs for their own homes. He Ain't Heavy has become the trademark of my artistic career and I am so very grateful. Thank you all.
