Quentin Blake discusses working with James Blake

Iconic illustrator Quentin Blake has discussed his work with James Blake in a new letter to BBC 6 Music DJ Mary Anne Hobbs.

Hobbs wrote to Quentin to "find out about his work on James’ new record", and she read out his reply on the air.

"There was a meeting between us," Quentin wrote. "I'm sort of a musical illiterate in that although I listen to music, I don't really know what's happening. Nevertheless, I can respond to atmosphere and James and I have, I think, some similar ideas about how the imagination works."

James Blake's new album The Colour In Anything is out now.

Listen to the Quentin Blake's letter, as read by Mary Anne Hobbs, below.
