Watch Quentin Blake Tell His Life Story and How He Started Work on the As Large As Life Exhibition at London's Foudling Museum at WebofStories.com


An exhibition entitled As Large as Life by Quentin Blake, the much loved illustrator of many of Roald Dahlís books, has opened at Londonís Foundling Museum. The exhibition shows 60 previously unseen works specially commissioned by four hospitals in the UK and in France. The series took five years to complete and coincides with the recent release of a commemorative collection of stamps depicting Blake's most famous illustrations used in the Roald Dahl classics.

London, United Kingdom, January 21, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Anyone interested in learning more about Quentin Blake should visit the Web of Stories website at www.webofstories.com/quentin.blake, which contains video recordings of Blake telling his life story and talking about how he started work on this ambitious project.

The As Large as Life project began in 2006 when Blake was approached by the South Kensington and Chelsea Mental Health Centre to create a set of pictures for their newly refurbished wards. Blake accepted because he had become very interested in the concept of enlarging illustrations that normally appeared only in books. Here he describes the difference it makes to a picture when it is enlarged:

"What is nice about it is that because the line is still very scratchy and the watercolour goes on in a rather irregular sort of way, all of that is enlarged and so it gives it hope, you know, it gives it a sort of a texture and quality."

Web of Stories hosts Quentin Blake's video archive which viewers can watch, listen to, comment on, and share with their friends and colleagues. The videos are also free for embedding into personal blogs and websites. Web of Stories invites everyone to watch these recordings, which include stories in which Blake talks about his work for The Spectator and Punch as well as the famous Roald Dahl books.

Web of Stories also invites everyone with their own stories to tell, to use Web of Stories’ very simple recorder that permits anyone to record their story using the camera and microphone now available in most computers and notebooks.
