Artists A-Z Quentin Blake

Quentin Blake was born in 1932 and has drawn ever since he can remember. 

Quentin Blake has always made his living as an illustrator, as well as teaching for over twenty years at the Royal College of Art, where he was head of the illustration department from 1978-1986.  Quentin Blake’s first drawings were published in ‘Punch’ while he was still at school.  He continued to draw for ‘Punch’, ‘The Spectator’ and other magazines over many years, while at the same time entering the world of children’s books with ‘A Drink of Water’ by John Yeoman in 1960.

Quentin Blake is known for his collaborations with writers such as Russell Hoban, Joan Aiken, Michael Rosen, John Yeoman and, most famously, Roald Dahl.  Quentin Blake has also illustrated books, and created much-loved characters of his own, including ‘Mister Magnolia’ and ‘Mrs Armitage’.

Quentin Blake’s books have won numerous prizes and awards, including the Whitbread Award, the Kate Greenaway Medal, the Emil/Kurt Maschler Award, the international Bologna Ragazzi Prize and the Hans Christian Andersen Award for Illustration.  In 1999 he was appointed the first ever Children’s Laureate, a post designed to raise the profile of children’s literature.  In all Quentin Blake has collected 12 honorary degrees which recognise his outstanding contribution to the worlds of illustration and children’s literature.
