Illustrator Quentin Blake, perhaps most well known for his collaborations with Roald Dahl, celebrates his 80th birthday today.
One of THE most important and inspiring artists in the industry, ever, Blake continues to work on new projects to this day. He has over 300 books to his name as well as numerous other projects over the years, many for charitable causes. His art has been a driving force for several of the most brilliant and creative children’s books ever written – and he’s also written one or two himself.
