'Along with an interest in expression goes one with pose and gesture. These drawings try to suggest that smiles are not always straightforwardly happy but may get mixed up with cringing and fawning and being patronising. And much else.' - Quentin Blake, November 2019
These smiling people are worked in single colours of chinagraph pencil, in a series of A3 drawing books. The complete series numbes over 60 drrawings.
