Phosphor Art are pleased to introduce you to Nathan Smith, their latest signing. Nathan has been working in the creative industries for nearly 30 years, originally training as a Theatre Designer and Scenic Artist, before moving into a long career in Fine Art and Illustration. His work still contains a theatrical flair – “quirky, visually intriguing, playful and informal” are just some of the terms that have been used to describe his style.

Seeing their first professional illustration always gives artists a buzz. Years ago, an over-excited fresh-faced illustrator ran into the office – this was at the time when some used to work in house. He was overexcited because he’d spotted someone on the Tube looking at his first paid-for drawing in a magazine.
Phosphor Art's Jon Rogers has been reviving his award-winning artwork from AMV BBDO's Guinness Extra Cold campaign. Originally from the year 2000, the series featured a number of cool objects reimagined as pints of Guinness Extra Cold – a desk fan, fridge-freezer, fire bucket, nipple, iceberg and lolly, beautifully put together by Jon.
