Illustrations Sale

Quentin Blake is the driving force behind the House of Illustration, a museum/gallery for illustrations past and present, British and international, to be opened in central London as soon as funds are available. To help raise funds, he and a number of other top children's illustrators have donated 28 drawings to be auctioned at Sotheby's in London on 16 December. The exhibition opens on 12 December. Click the title link for a BBC slideshow. My favourite is this drawing of Kipper by Mick Inkpen, who has turned Cute into an art form. His Wibbly Pig series is the best thing since Leonardo da Vinci's sketchbook. CLICK to learn more about the House of Illustration. Quentin Blake will sign books at Chris Beetles Gallery, London, on Sunday 12 December between 10am - 12 and 2 - 4pm. Phone the gallery for details: 020 7839 7551.
