One of the most impressive things a good illustrator can do is to capture an expression and a personality with the flick of a brush stroke. MH Jeeves proves my point with her rugby ball faces, who are bursting with character, created for the Leeds' Spectacular Expression of Rugby.

We have a bright and sunny new artist to introduce today to liven up a particularly grey week here in London. Charlotte Day has cultivated her deep-rooted fascination for all things horticultural into a career creating beautiful botanical illustrations. With a level of craftsmanship and detail rarely seen in contemporary illustration, but still retaining that modern edge, her work has found a home with packaging, book covers and editorial work alike.

Following on from Sarah J Coleman's cover for To Kill a Mockingbird published in the US in 2010, she set her sights on a cover of the much anticipated sequel, Go Set a Watchman. Although Penguin produced their cover in-house, the efforts paid off and she was commissioned to produce a cover for the Korean release of the book!

The Ashes have begun, so I can't think of a better excuse to post this illustration by Mick Marston for the Present exhibition which will be a part of the London Design Festival in September. The image is inspired by the quote 'Truth Alone Triumphs'. The project aims to raise money to help street children in India.

We've been on the hunt for an extraordinary paper sculptor for some time now, so it was just our luck when the Wakefield-based artist Andy Singleton landed right in our laps. His detailed three dimensional paper work explores the natural and man made worlds, and he's worked with some pretty luxurious London based retailers including Harrods and Liberty of London. With his portfolio ranging from the most conceptual gallery based work to printed editorial commissions, this is one adaptable chap!

Brosmind created this crazy ensemble cast for M Le Monde magazine for an article about vineyards in urban areas. Bottoms up!

Lou Beach created a totally off the wall series of illustrations for British Airways' inflight magazine, High Life, about national identities. With hints of Monty Python and drenched in Beach's outrageous surrealism, this is not your average editorial work, but it made us chuckle! Here's to not playing it safe!

This summer, which camp will you be in? Will you be sipping prosecco and chowing down on a slice of pizza in the shadow of The Colosseum? Or will you be tucking into a paella and a bottle of Cava on the cobbled streets of Barcelona? Jonny Wan illustrates this battle of the two great holiday nations for British Airways' High Life magazine this month. (I have to say I'm a pizza and prosecco girl myself).
