House of Illustration is the UK's first public gallery dedicated to illustration as an art form. A registered charity founded by Sir Quentin Blake, we run a creative programme of exhibitions and events, support emerging talent by commissioning new work and run a pioneering learning programme.

In 2017, ten exhibitions across our three galleries will explore fashion, fetishism, anime, architecture, gentrification, children's illustration and more. They include work from our Illustrators in Residence and our fourth commissioned exhibition of original work.

On now:
