Quentin Blake

You cannot remember a book by Roald Dahl without thinking of the fantastic illustrations by Quentin Blake. Even watching the Musical 'Mathilda' last weekend, I unconsciously compared the pictures from his book with the real life characters on stage - pretty close!

If you love this illustrator as much as our family, than you will be happy to learn, that today sees the opening of "As large as life" - an exhibition of resent work created for four hospitals in the UK and France. Also shown are works by William Hogarth and contemporaries who donated their art to the Foundling Hospital in the 1740.

The exhibition takes place at  Foundling Museum, 40 Brunswick Square, WC1, from today till 15. April 2012

And if you want to make it a literary outing - the Charles Dickens Museum is just around the corner. It will shut in April for a major renovation project, so get there fast. (why in the year of Dicken's 200th birthday is anyones guess).
