Roald Dahl - Matilda by MortenEng21 Roald Dahl - Matilda by MortenEng21
Here is a drawing from my fascination of Roald Dahl and his universe.
So I decided to draw one of the characters from one of Roald Dahl's books.
And here it is all drawn by me inspired by Quentin Blake's drawings from most of all Roald Dahl's books.
I'm a fan of both Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake.
The drawings in the books are so funny, good and fantastic. And it inspires me alot as an artist.

And my all-time favorite book is "The Enormous Crocodile".
I love that story so very much ever since I was a little kid and I discovered for the first time since in my days and years in elementary school.

Oh, yes. Back to the drawing of mine:

"Matilda" is a fantastic and funny one ever told from Roald Dahl, the world's biggest storyteller nr. 1.
I have seen the movie with the same name from 1996 starring Danny DeVito as Matilda's father (and is also the film's director) and Mara Wilson as Matilda (the title role).
Here you see here is Matilda and the horrible principal Miss Trunchbull.

That freaking bitch was the school's principal right? Geez, no wonder kids don't like going to the school nowadays.

Yes it is.

Childhood traumas can be quite a challenge to overcome.

*gulp* Miss Trunchbull...:fear: 

I believe "Matilda" is an awesome book from Roald Dahl next to James and the Gaint Peach.;) Also gotta love the movie!

Yes it is an awesome book ever.
I actually bought the films MATILDA and JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH on DVD today.

MATILDA: I'm telling you, I didn't do it.

MISS TRUNCHBULL: Besides, even if you didn't do it, I'm going to punish you, because I'm big and you're small, and I'm right, and you're wrong. And there's nothing you can do about it.
You're a liar and a scoundrel, And your father's a liar and a cheat. You're the most corrupt low-lifes in the history of civilization. Am I wrong?!? I'm never wrong!
In this classroom, in this school, I AM GOD!!!!

Did U know the actor who played Trunchbull played Mrs. White in the 1992 edition of Cluedo?
MortenEng21 Dec 11, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Okay. I see. That is the British actress Pam Ferris.

Never ever heard of CLUEDO before. I get it!

She did a really good role as Miss Trunchbull.
Very funny and mad bad villain ever.
