October sun

october sun, october sun, october sun.

Here is a link to the very nice interview with Quentin Blake that the guardian published last week. And to think that I've spent the morning chopping up and shifting round a text by Michael Rosen myself (this book is still not definite, so I don't know how much I should mention it really).

Thanks for posting this link. It's a great interview, it's fascinating to have him explain how he took two pages of text and made it a book. I also like that he likes putting old people in trees!

You probably know about this but if you're intested there are a few short films of Quentin working in the studio the article mentions, here...

Thanks John, I hadn't spotted those films and they're fascinating. You see him work and you just can't imagine that he gets fractious about anything in the world, even though he says he does!
