How to draw Fantastic Mr Fox

Last updated 21 November 2012, 11:50 AM

Today we learned how Quentin Blake creates illustrations. He has done lots of work with Roald Dahl and with other authors. He starts his drawings with pen. We had a go drawing with pen too, just like Quentin Blake. We watched this video before we started, to help us think like Quentin Blake does. He explained the process he goes through when he illustrates a book.


When we finished, we talked about what it felt like to work with pen. Some people really enjoyed it, while others thought it was a bit risky.  Here's a wordle showing what we think it's like to work with pen in the same way as Quentin Blake.

 Here's the video if you would like to try again at home..

Tomorrow we will use water colours to paint our foxes.  Check our blog again soon to see how we go.
