Unconvincing Smiles

'Smiles are very enjoyable and at once time or another I have drawn a lot of them; but I partly think of illustration as a form of acting and so I thought I ought to try to do a variety of individuals whose smiles are not genuine, and perhaps, in that way, invite the spectator to think about their characters.' - Quentin Blake, May 2021
