Sir Quentin Blake (....and i)

J'ai eu l'immense honneur d'aller visiter maître Quentin Blake dans son studio, pour récupérer le Sketchtravel. Les mots manquent pour décrire cette experience unique. La frustration après coup de ne pas profiter plus de ce genre de moment unique, le sentiment de petitesse ressenti sous la bibliothèque recouvrant le mur, et remplie de plus de 340 livres.
Bref, je n'en menais pas large et c'est ce genre de rencontre qui marque pour longtemps et font reflechir beaucoup!
Catherine s'est occupé de l'interview et Ben, des photos et du film. Je salue au passage leur implication dans le projet.
N'oubliez pas d'aller voir le blog du Sketchtravel pour plus de détails.




I had the huge honnor to meet master Quentin Blake in his London studio, to get the Sketchtravel from him.
Words are weak to describe this very unique experience. The frustration afterwards not to take more advantage of that kind of rare moments, the feeling of beeing so small under the bookshelf packed with more than 340 books.
I was really impressed, and I will remember this for a long time, and that the kind of thing that make you think a lot about your own work.
Catherine was in charge of the interview and Ben filmed and took the pictures. They are so involved in the project.
Don't forget to check the Sketchtravel blog for more details. More to come!
