The House of Illustration in England will be the first place totally devoted to illustration as an art form. We have Quentin Blake to thank for that, signature illustrator behind the Road Dahl books. His drawings paint my childhood and pre-teen years when I was a shy-away-from-home bookworm. I'll always love the authors who wrote the books that kept me company then. Forever favorite.
P.S. Heard this news through a friend's Twitter, Bret Helquist. Also an insanely talented illustrator.
