Studio Sundays: the Art Studio of Sir Quentin Blake

Artist sitting by work desk
Every Sunday we give you a behind-the-scenes tour into the heart of creativity, the artist's studio. This week we visit the art studio of the famous artist Sir Quentin Blake well-known for his expressive illustrations that gave visual form to many Roald Dahl books such as Matilda, James and the Giant Peach and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Looking at Quentin Blake's drawings always makes me feel light-hearted. This artist brings the perfect amount of humour, cheekiness and sweetness to everything he has ever done. Big love Sir Quentin Blake.
