Inspiration Alley: Quentin Blake + Comic Tools Blog

Qb6001_large

Many thanks to Jillian Tamaki, for her lovely post drawing our attention to the incomparable Quentin Blake's website, and providing a link to this wonderful short video of Mr. Blake drawing an illustration for a picture book.

The pleasure of watching other people make beautiful things never fades. Nor does the curiosity about how they do it, and why they do it that way. This is one reason I'm enjoying reading :01 artist Matt Bernier on the comic tools blog, with its plentiful and illuminating tips and testimonials about brushes, nibs, paper, lettering, lightboxes, etc.

And then there was the magic moment when Matt revealed just how he had been taking photos of both of his hands doing something:

Yes, he strapped the camera to his face.

The Quentin Blake video is awesome! Especially love how he adds the watercolor.
