Quentin Blake

http://www.quentinblake.com/

Quentin Blake is an English cartoonist, illustrator and children’s author, well known for his collaborations with writer Roald Dahl.

His distinct artistic style uses fast, scribbly ink lines, but with a precise stroke. His idiosyncratic use of line adds depth to his drawings, conveying movement and emotions by creating images with a sense of excitement. First, he makes pen-and-ink drawings, and then adds watercolour. The spontaneity of his style is achieved by making a draft image with a free hand at first, and then tracing elements via light table from the first draft onto subsequent drafts.
