Quentin Blake

Roald Dahl says that there are a number of ways to identify a witch. They are as follows, in case you were suspicious of someone.
1.) They are always scratching their heads on account of the wigs they wear.
2.) They always carry strange and very formal looking handbags.
3.) They are always wearing gloves.
4.) They have no toes.

O.K. what this is really about is the illustrations in Roald Dahl's books by Quentin Blake. 
http://www.quentinblake.com/fossicking/intro.html- it's great, this should take you to his St. Valentines Day Massacre illustrations- if your used to his Roald Dahl stuff, you wont expect this!! http://www.quentinblake.com/fossicking/gallery.html -scroll down to his "Thoughts and Aphorisms of the fruits of meditation of Kozma Prutkov"- these are rad. Here's some of his more "mature" works. i like. i like alot.
