Quote Monkeys

"So please, oh PLEASE, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away. And in its place you can install, a lovely bookshelf on the wall." - Roald Dahl

Done it! My illustration for our Quote Book - Just Imagine Centre Illustrators' Group

 

Our last one, the Travelling Sketchbook, took a year to complete. I am number 2 in this round. You can follow the illustrators'  journey on facebook.

 

We each chose a sealed envelope that revealed a quote about reading books. I was excited by mine but I avoided searching for the root of the quote so that I wasn't influenced by any illustration that had gone before. Now I know the text is from Roald Dahl's  Charlie And The Chocolate Factory. I'm glad I didn't recognise the Oompa-Loompas' words in the quote but I must find Quentin Blake's illustration for it!
