Phosphor's Dave Hopkins is known for his etching style pen and ink illustrations, which are perfect for both fiction and non-fiction books. His distinctive style is showcased on the cover art for 101 Stumbles in the March of History, a new book from the author of 100 Mistakes that Changed History.

Mayfair based William & Son are on the move, packing up their Mount Street store and heading for beautiful new premises on nearby Bruton Street. To mark this new chapter they commissioned Sarah Maycock to illustrate their new building in all it's glory. Sarah also illustrated a map from the old store to the new, allowing their customers to choose between the quick route, the foodie route or Handsome Frank's favoured option, the refreshing route.
Dave Hopkins drew a number of portraits to be printed on deck chairs for Historic Royal Palaces to celebrate Hampton Court Palace’s 500th Anniversary, taking place this year.
The portraits include Bradley Wiggins, Grand Duchess Xenia, Captain Robert Falcon Scott, Lady Baden Powell and Paddington Bear – all of whom have been linked to the Palace in the past.
These punchy drawings for Manchester's 'Dirty North' are by pen and ink master Ben Tallon. Working with the band, Ben has produced gritty artworks for the single and album inlay. Ben says "'The Blues' is the new single from Dirty North, a three piece from Wythenshawe, Manchester fusing reggae with rap and guitar music...... I met the boys in Wythenshawe, Europe's biggest council estate. We toured the local hangouts where the boys grew up, providing much fuel for the lyrics and musical identity. I photographed everything from graffiti on the underpass to melted wheelie bins, attracting attention from a few bystanders. The results delighted the band and The Blues is out now on Corporate Records." Dirty North are also rumoured to be supporting The Stone Roses at Heaton Park.
