Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

I've never been any good at sport. I just liked the idea of adapting Olympic events to everyday life -so if you're throwing something, it's the luggage.

In recent years I have found myself working increasingly in sequences of drawings which explore subjects and techniques which interest me.

These sequences are the origins of the QB Papers; they vary in approach and tone, and between reality and fantasy. But I hope that in each of them in its own way will appeal to anyone who likes looking at drawings.' - Quentin Blake
