Quentin Blake

Quentin Blake answers some interesting questions. There's no audio on the first few seconds of the video for some reason but the rest is fine.


p.s the "by me" on the top of the video is not really me. That's just how the video is featured on YouTube. Wouldn't that be something though? A dream come true to be able to be sitting in a room talking to him. :o)

I know Barney! He is such an interesting person. Filled with charisma just like his strokes :o)

Thanks for stopping by the PBJunkie's blog.

I love his cozy, cluttered studio, and the little balcony overlooking the park. Makes my own tiny workspace seem capable of great things too. Thanks for sharing!

Alicia Padrón said...

Yes John, I found his studio very cozy too and in a way sort of similar to his art.. It's hard to explain.

I like the fact that he usually works standing up. I think that is part of why his work always looks so fresh and sketch-like. Maybe if was sitting down he would unconsciously take more time re-drawing on the light table. I don't know.. just a thought. :o)
