2/15 Quentin Blake: Inside Stories

If you love Quentin Blake’s simply wonderful illustrations (you’ll know them from Roald Dahl’s classic children’s books such as Matilda and The Twits as well as in David Walliams comedy fiction for youngsters such as The Boy in the Dress and Gangsta Granny) then head along to a fascinating exhibition from House of Illustration which gives a unique insight into how Blake creates his genius drawings from start to finish.

There are over 100 pieces of artwork on show  - inks, watercolours and pastels – and you’ll get to see how his characters develop from first roughs, storyboards and finished artworks. The exhibition also features his illustrations for books by John Yeoman, Russell Hoban and Michael Rosen.
