P.S.I first saw it on twitter. As far as I understand, it's not copyrighted. I''m not sure of the original source it came from.(Mine comes from this article).

  1. The art style is definitely Quentin Blake, who did a lot of illustrations of children's books. Of note, I recall his art in at least the British editions of several of Roald Dahl's books.

  2. Thanks for the info, Carol! The image def looks like a scanned page out of the book to me.

  3. I'm not sure but I have seen this quote attributed to Roald Dahl, also. It certainly sounds like him.

  4. Yes, apparently it's him. I should admit, I've heard of him but never read any of his books.

  5. It's true, isn't it? Ugliness on the inside is reflected in outward appearance, a lot of the time. Not in terms of natural looks but in terms of unkempt, slovenly dress, etc.

  6. Yes but also the face features. Remember the story of Dorian Gray when his portrait grew uglier every time he did something dreadful?

  7. This illustration came from The Twits written by Roald Dahl.
