Blake on The Crocodile

Can you ever get enough of this man?

NOOOO!

Here Blake talks about the making of his book Crocodile. Once again so insightful and really hits home in terms of using the right mark making tools for just the right story. He -as he also mentions briefly in his amazing book "Words and Pictures" - specifically used a harder reed pen to ink the Crocodile than for other work. Also I love what he says about leaving room for the imagination when it comes to creating an illustration. We don't want to make it too detailed and realistic so that the reader can image the story along and it can truly come alive...
