Web of Stories: Quentin Blake

Posted by Rob Alderson,

There are some people in this world – reality TV stars, ex-partners, racists – who you literally never want to hear from but there are others who you never want to stop talking. For many of us, the iconic illustrations of Quentin Blake were a massive part of our childhood and shaped the very way we see the world, so it’s a privilege to hear from the man himself. The excellent Web of Stories site has 65 short interviews with the man himself, covering his schooldays, his incredible career and his time as children’s laureate among much else. It’s a real treat to get such articulate, first-hand insights into true genius.
