Women Holding Strange Creatures – Quentin Blake

If you grew up reading Roald Dahl, the chances are you will have come across illustrator Quentin Blake – his iconic illustrations brought the BFG, the Twits and a range of other classic characters to life.

Primarily an illustrator for children’s books, Blake also ventures into more adult territory. This collection of illustrations shows exactly what the name describes – women holding strange creatures. Using nothing but a reed pen and with no preliminary sketches, Blake brings his signature rough style to a series of nudes. Beautiful work!
