Marta Spendowska illustrates Stella McCartney and Brussel Sprouts for two issues of D2 Magazine.
These fabulous watercolour paintings were commissioned by Norwegian Business Daily - known as D2. The first was to create a portrait of Stella McCartney and a set of four spontaneous 'sport fashion' looks based on Stella’s collaboration with Adidas. For the second issue Marta illustrated an article about the new power food of brussel sprouts, combining them with a salad, walnuts and parmesan cheese!

Helen Lang works on a community engagement programme for the City of London.
Helen was commissioned by the education and marketing department of Tower Bridge to illustrate a loose and imaginative version of the London skyline as seen from the high-level walkways at Tower Bridge. The artwork was used to engage children and parents as part of the community fair and allow them to creatively respond to the artistic rendering of the skyline. Helen says "This illustration features historic figures and details particular events in the life of the Bridge such as the time a huge rubber duck was floated down the Thames and the time a bus jumped across the bridge. The final illustration was divided up into sections and participants were invited and encouraged to colour in sections of the skyline, to add their own skyscrapers, boats, buses, trains, clouds, trees, dogs, people, aliens, monsters- whatever they like! By the end of the day they had a fully populated (and very colourful) view of the area surrounding Tower Bridge"
Andrew Hutchinson celebrates Yorkshire Day with Taylors of Harrogate Yorkshire Tea.

Local artist Andrew has made a fun twist on a famous Yorkshire landmark with the card featuring a chalk teapot instead of the well-known white horse cut into the hillside above Kilburn, North Yorkshire.

James Grover adds more of his magic to the walls of Zizzi Ristorante in Market Harborough.
The mural was hand drawn live on site, using acrylic pen paints and emulsion. And referencing the history of the area with it's close proximity to Rockingham Forest, James says "In prehistoric times the area was the largest expanse of woodland in the country, but deforestation has seen a large reduction in its size. More recently, in medieval England, the forest was allocated as a Royal Hunting Forest where wild boar, fallow deer and pheasant were in abundance. Nowadays, the remaining forest is protected and is still a key feature of the area." Another superb Zizzi interior by James!
