Find more of Oxo's work on the Phosphor website.

Rest in Peace Dave Hopkins, Phosphor


One of Phosphor's last SAA news stories sung the praises of award-winning veteran artist Dave Hopkins and invited more commissions for him. We are heartbroken to announce that Dave lost his battle with cancer on 13th August. It was so typical of Dave's professionalism, that even though he was very poorly and undergoing debilitating treatment, he was still keen to be drawing in his truly inimitable way. To the end, he maintained his proud career record of never missing a deadline or having an illustration rejected.
