As its nearly Christmas I thought it be good to blog our new and trendy Artist Partners Christmas Card - its fun and festive and its a totally unique style by our talented artist Dawn Austin, who has been customising and making her own dolls, dressing them and setting them all in rather kitsch Diorama's. This year we used her Festive image for our Artist Partners Christmas Card - enjoy more of her work here: Dawn Austin
Phosphor Art would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! Here are two very different Christmas cards illustrated by Phosphor Artists this year.
Artist Partners are delighted to add Esther Cox to their talented list of artists - and very delighted we are too. Esther who comes from a surface pattern design background - loves to work with textures, and bright bold colours, and has a great sense of modern vintage about her work.
Every now and then we come across a new illustrator and their work just grabs us by the head and heart and shouts "SIGN ME". That was certainly the case when we first came across Quentin Monge, who's work is a sublime cacophony of colour, patterns and characters.

So that just leaves one question to be answered, who's going to be the first person to commission him?

He is based in Los Angeles. We spoke with Jon about his inspiration, process and how his personal experiences inform the subject matter of his work. Read on for a glimpse into the creative process of a new Bright artist:
After graduating from the London College of Communication in 2008, Emily Rand spent some time working in arts education, running workshops with children in galleries and schools. A trip to Paris and its beautiful children’s bookshops re-ignited her love for children’s books and inspired Emily to create the illustrations for her first book A Dog Day.
