Quentin Blake : Inside Stories

My first visit to House of Illustration was to see the inaugural exhibition
'Quentin Blake : Inside Stories'. It was incredible! not only is the space
absolutely beautiful but it was a fascinating and intimate exhibition
which I thoroughly enjoyed.

There were story boards and early sketches and original painted
illustrations from five of the books he has worked on. I particularly
enjoyed seeing work from ‘The Twits’ and Michael Rosen’s ‘Sad Book’.

Highly recommended, go and see it before it ends on November 2nd.

These are some photos I took in the ‘Museum of Broken Relationships’ by
Olinka Vistika and Drazen Grubisic. I spent quite a while in here pouring
over all of the items and the stories that went with them.
These were a few of my favourites stories and items.

The ‘Museum of Broken Relationships’ and ‘Dear Cathy and Claire: an
Exhibition of Letters to Jackie Magazine’s Famous Agony Aunts’ are a
part of Southbank Centre’s ‘Festival of Love’. You can find both of these
in the festival village and they are open until late most nights.
