Quentin Blake, exuberance unleashed
In his murals for a children’s hospital, "Blake, without knowing why, started drawing pictures of children in trees. It was only later that he saw how apt they were. 'The fundamental idea, I realised, was that if you jump, or fall out of a tree, there will always be someone to catch you.'”
Recently QUENTIN BLAKE has been creating murals for hospitals and mental health centres, which also appear in a new collection of his recent work, Beyond the Page.
We've written about Blake before. A month before he turns 80, he's still exuberant. Hooray!
