Quentin Blake & Roald Dahl

Sir Quentin Blake is an English illustrator, born in 1932 in Sidcup, Kent, best known for his work with the legendary author, Roald Dahl. He is one of those artists whose work is instantly recognisable. His style is carefree, quick, easy-going, but at the same time warm, funny and always conveying information to keep the story moving. His tools are waterproof ink and numerous scruffy-looking dip pens of all sizes.

His art brought Roald Dahl's distinctive prose to life. Who can forget his wonderful illustrations for George’s Marvellous Medicine, The Twits, The BFG or Revolting Rhymes? Once you’ve seen them, they stay with you for life. As these stories became films, such as the BFG in 2016, Sir Quentin’s drawings took on new life. In 1999, Sir Quentin was appointed the first ever Children’s Laureate, a new post devised to raise the profile of children’s literature.

His prints grace the walls of libraries and children’s bedrooms across the globe. On his method, Sir Quentin wrote. ‘I do a freewheeling sort of drawing that looks as though it is done on the spur of the moment. However, even a single drawing needs a certain amount of preparation and planning.’
