On 16th December 2022, Quentin Blake turned 90 and to mark the event, the Quentin Blake Centre for Illustration (formerly House of Illustration), invited 90 illustrators to draw a candle inspired by the original meaning of the word 'Illustration' – to light up, make light and illuminate.
The illustrations were put together into a book and presented to Quentin as a surprise on his birthday. Montana adds, "It was a wonderful idea to illustrate and such an honour to be a part of this campaign! For a limited time, special edition prints can be purchased on the online shop and every purchase will support Quentin's vision for a national centre for illustration in the UK, which is set to open in 2024.
