Quentin Blake Centre for Illustration
With a National Art Pass you get
The more you see, the more we do.
The National Art Pass lets you enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, while raising money to support them.
From adverts to animation, picture books to political cartoons and scientific drawings to fashion design – the home for the art of illustration.
The House of Illustration was set up in 2002 by a group of leading UK illustrators. At the helm of the project was Quentin Blake, who also donated more than 4,000 of his own drawings and illustrated books.
Originally exhibitions were organised for existing galleries, but in 2014 House of Illustration opened its own permanent space in King's Cross. Through its diverse programme, the gallery showed work spanning the full spectrum of illustration, representing both established and emerging artists.
Renamed the Quentin Blake Centre for Illustration, they are currently working on a new space that will open in Clerkenwell, London in 2025. In the meantime, you can still access their work online and offsite and check for updates via Twitter, Instagram or the blog.
