Getting organised - A suggestion for Half Term Quentin Blake Exhibition

I love the artwork of Quentin Blake and have yet to find another artist that portrays people in such a unique way.  My children have a collection Of Roald Dahl books illustrated by him and they always comments on the pictures.

I wanted to let you know about a new exhibition of the man's work that is to open soon at The Foundling Museum in London:

Quentin Blake – As large as life  (Runs from Thursday 12 January –Sunday 15 April 2012)

Quentin Blake is one of Britain’s best-loved and most successful illustrators. Well known for illustrating stories by Roald Dahl, Blake was Britain’s first Children’s Laureate.  Showing at the Foundling Museum, Quentin Blake – As large as life presents recent work commissioned by four hospitals in the UK and France. Further information on this exhibition and what else is on offer is available on the Foundling Museums website.

The Foundling Museum  is situated at 40 Brunswick Square, London WC1N 1AZ and entrance prices for this exhibition are £7.50,  £5 concession but free to children. So as Half Term will here before we all know it this new exhibition may be worth bearing in mind for a visit.

Here's a taster of some of Quentins work...
