Quentin Blake English, b. 1932


Sir Quentin Blake is an English cartoonist, children's writer, and illustrator. Some of his most popular works are the illustrated books of Roald Dahl. Born in 1932, Blake started to draw at a young age and had his first work published when he was sixteen. In the 1960s, he moved to France where he taught English and also started to illustrate books. His drawing style is reminiscent of childhood, of nostalgia and simpler times. 

Sir Quentin Blake has illustrated over 300 books, and written 35 himself.
