Quentin Blake Wins Prince Philip Designers Prize

Quentin Blake has won the Prince Philip Designers Prize, winning over fashion designer Paul Smith and hat designer Stephen Jones. 

"Illustration is a strange cousin in the family, so to appear alongside other kinds of designers… is very gratifying," he told the BBC.

Blake was the first ever British Children’s Laureate in 1999.  He is the beloved illustrator of Roald Dahl’s books.
