Quentin Blake draws and tells the story of Lester and friends Olympic Games

I found this wonderful archive of Quentin drawing live on BBC programme Jackanory

In the 1970s Blake was an occasional presenter of the BBC children’s story-telling programme Jackanory, when he would illustrate the stories on a canvas as he was telling them.  The highest recognition available to creators of children’s books.

Such an amazing video to watch, Sir Quentin was drawing while telling the story. I like his  simple style  and full of features.
