Quentin Blake’s Ten Minutes of Illustration

There’s not many illustrators who have as broad a fan-base as Quentin Blake… Almost every child is likely to have seen a Roald Dahl book with his amazingly manic and creative sketches dotted through. And I was delighted when I stumbled across this retro video of him talking through his drawing and painting techniques. There’s a great write up on his site as well!

    I can’t admire Quentin’s work more. There’s so much life and whimsey in his line, but so much shape on the page and solid composition! Color: the man is a fountain of delight spewing seemingly haphazard gouts of brightness. But I know just how much discipline color balance as skillful as his work takes.
