This is straightforward farce. A friend, recently trained in advising businesses, wrote a commentary on my office which took it upon itself to warn us of “Trip Hazards,” amusing to us as you don’t need warning, the place is full of them, books, portfolios, frames and so on. These drawings acknowledge our awareness of them.
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
