Phosphor Art’s Fiammetta Dogi recently bagged some space in the gorgeous new Betty Annual. Betty is a beautifully designed independent magazine for women about women. Their philosophy is for people to embrace who they are and celebrate it. Fiammetta created several chapter headings consisting of beautifully intricate flowers wrapping around letters – definitely worth cutting out and framing!
Phosphor Art are pleased to introduce you to Marcus (AKA Marc Bach) who they jumped at the chance to add to their books! Marcus works with a number of different techniques and materials but his sense of humour always shines through in his often surrealist illustrations. Marcus has won several awards and nominations, most recently Best Fiction Children’s Book at Junceda Illustration Awards 2014 (Spain) and was shortlisted at Jonathan Cape/The Observer/Comica Short Story Prize 2014 (UK).
Phosphor Art are running a feature on their website called Meet the Artist, a simple five question interview which aims to gain a better insight into the world of their artists. Most recently featured was Chinese artist Nod Young who told Phosphor all about his current self-initiated comic book project and advises aspiring artists to grab every opportunity.
A new interview will be uploaded monthly so look out for July’s interview, which will feature the work of Jenny Lloyd.

Flavio Melchiorre (A.K.A IDRO51) has transformed another wall with his iconic ‘hypnotic art’. The wall in Lentella, Italy measures a whopping 6x2.5 metres and was created as part of the NatureArte Festival which celebrates outdoor painting and sculptures.
Flavio’s work, named ‘Listen Your Nature’ has since been noticed by many street art websites, including Global Street Art.
Jonathan Leach was commissioned by Still-Moving DJs to illustrate a promotional piece of artwork to celebrate their seven year anniversary.
The fantastical image features the two DJs riding on the backs of dinosaurs – one of their favourite things. The DJs can often be found surrounded by toy dinosaurs on the decks at their gigs so naturally they loved Jonathan’s portrayal of them. Still-Moving DJs are currently preparing for The Larmer Tree Festival in Salisbury.
Australian illustrator Christopher Nielsen worked on a series of surfing images with Winkreative. The bold illustrations accompany an article about Munich River Surfer Carsten Kurmis in Mini International – a free magazine for Mini drivers and admirers around the world.
