Publisher Description

These are fairly naturalistic "observed" drawings, though of course they are not drawn from life. Once again it is a range of gestures and expressions, the way the works on and reacts to the big drawing which we never see.

In recent years I have found myself working increasingly in sequences of drawings which explore subjects and techniques which interest me.

These sequences are the origins of the QB Papers; they vary in approach and tone, and between reality and fantasy. But I hope that in each of them in its own way will appeal to anyone who likes looking at drawings.' - Quentin Blake
