Quentin Blake Illustration!
For my illustration I chose one of my favorite artists, Quentin Blake. I did several re-dos of this project, but each one just didn't seem "right".
I finally realized what I was doing wrong- Blake's work is almost always published in black and white unless he was doing a cover, so it looked strange in color. Also, I noticed that my technique and characters looked too "neat"; Blake often scratched in figures and painted energetically outside lines.
