Quentin Blake exhibition

Tues 4th Oct

We visited the Quentin Blake: Inside Stories exhibition at National Museum Cardiff. In this exhibition, it included some of his most famous work. It showed a lot his rough drawings and is design process to get to his final drawing. There was video’s of him describing his design process, how he plays with layout and tries to include as much description within his drawings without having to say anything. It was interesting to see how such a famous artist thinks and works.

We weren’t allowed to take any photographs of the exhibition but I did take a quote that was written on the wall and have also taken screenshots from the museum website.

“I discovered that a drawing can fulfil its purpose and still be scratchy and instinctive and badly–behaved” – Quentin Blake
