I had an idea about doing some drawing of costume, called Modest Attire, and then somehow it divided itself into two. One is this - improvised costumes of material of no importance or perhaps even cardboard. A good opportunity for inventing variations on a theme. 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.
