Quentin Blake : Inside Stories

image

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.

Paperfest

I recently attended Paperfest, run by Abigail Warner and Lucy Ledger of
Paper Girls. It was a great networking event with very inspiring speakers
and plenty of wonderful people. I saw some familiar faces and met some
great new people.

The key note speaker was Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co. and as a huge
fan of her work I had to attend. Her Q & A was very interesting and she
was kind enough to sign the prints we were given.

I can’t wait to see what happens at next years event!
You can find out more about the Paper girls on their website and the
other workshops and seminars they run for creative business.
