It may just have been an accident that I drew a man looking at a line on the floor. After that I drew a lot more, and after that I edited and redrew some so that the line took on a character of its own and one can believe (I hope) that it’s actually moving, with its observer reacting appropriately. I thought it became almost like a simple, tiny animated film.
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
