The celebrated illustrator, cartoonist and author delighted fans with an illustrated talk about his career to date. He shared examples of some early pictures which he actually drew as a young boy visiting Sidcup Library. Sir Quentin told the audience that the library was important to him as a child and how he had always looked forward to discovering what was inside the books on display.Quentin Blake

Sir Quentin has recently worked on some fabulous murals to brighten up hospitals both here and in France and I am sure this multi-talented octogenarian will be charming us with his work for many years to come..Quentin Blake
