Phosphor Art's James Gifford was recently commissioned by Oxford University Press to illustrate Thorkild's Song by Rudyard Kipling in his signature Graphic Novel style. The poem is from The Puck of Pook's Hill, originally published in 1906 and is sung by a Danish seafarer hoping for wind. We're looking forward to receiving our copy of the book with the text on James' gorgeous illustrations. For now you can read the poem below...
We are delighted to show you the wonderful illustrations by Violeta Dabija for the book 'Water Can Be..' published by Millbrook Press, a division of Lerner books. Violeta's gorgeous and atmospheric art, full of imagination and warmth, shines through in this beautifully produced publication, which is a delightful, poetic exploration of all the wonderful things that water brings us.. whether that be a thirst quencher, a kid drencher, a cloud fluffer or fire snuffer! This is the follow up book to 'A Leaf Can Be...' and Violeta is currently working on the third book in the series, so stay tuned for news on that one!

Hannah Megee has been commissioned by Broadbent Studio and Wyre Borough Council to design a paving slab to sit at the base of a new sculpture on Cleveleys' award-winning 'People's Promenade'. The resulting piece has images and text inspired by 'The Sea Swallow', a children's book illustrated by Hannah last year in association with the same project. She says "The images also show a granite relief of another of my book illustrations depicting two sea swallows in flight."

It's not often that you get a brief which asks you to design a bear equivalent of Ray Winstone with the swagger of a chain-smoking cockney for 7 to 9 year olds! Kristyna Litten rose to the challenge and came up with this brilliant wrap-a-round cover for Mr McCool, published by Egmont this month.
