Quentin Blake



Quentin Blake is one of my favourite illustrators. i love his strokes and lines. that's why i made these. i copied the first one from his original drawing. the second is only his style.

Wow, you really captured Blakes style. His line work always seems very fast and simple, but I bet its more complicated then that, right?

thanks for the kind comment -- thought i'd swing by your blog -- and lo -- quentin blake -- one of my favourites too!

i think he's like an ice-dancer or something -- he makes it look so easy, but years of work have gone into being able to draw that freely...

nice work btw -- love the mice

yup, great analogy. his works seems so easy, but it's surely not..
thanks! ^_^

el, kamu emang pinter nggambar ya.. aku tahu satu ibu (ibunya temenku), tinggal di bandung, yang lukisannya kaya kamu gini style-nya -- children book. baguuus banget. usianya mungkin sekarang 70-an dan masih aktif nggambar. jangan-jangan?
