Sir Quentin Blake’s flights of fancy

Quentin Blake and Roald Dahl’s children books are inextricably linked in people’s mind. But that is neither the beginning nor the end of Blake. He has his own body of work and his own hinterland. And at 84 years old, Sir Quentin is as prolific as ever. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went on foot to see his biggest ever UK show of recent pictures, The Only Way To Travel at the Jerwood Gallery.

The Ugly Duckling

Once upon a time…

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin…. Who can resist a good story, animatedly told, eyes wide, face expressive, the voice deep and resonant, rising,  then trickling to a whisper? Certainly HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths is happy to imagine snuggling down beside a fire, and being seduced by a tale of fear, fantasy or fun.
