In this celebration of one of Britain’s best-loved artists, illustrator and author Sir Quentin Blake tells the story of his 70-year long career, in his own words – and with his own pictures! He is filmed as he is creating an extraordinary new work especially for this documentary: a huge canvas on which self-portraits and classic characters emerge in his instantly recognisable, energetic, and ebullient style.
