Jitesh Patel created this enormous one-off map for Chivas Regal. The map provided the backdrop as part of a global competition Chivas are running called The Venture. The illustrated map uses words, sentences and phrases from a report commissioned by Chivas on social entrepreneurism. Get your brain around that one!

Dale is a rare breed of self-taught illustrators, influenced by Hip-hop culture, skateboard graphics, Bluenote record sleeves and Scandinavian folk art... this hotchpotch of influences has manifested itself in a slick but hugely adaptable style. He likes to mix up the digital precision of vector illustration with the idiosyncrasies of traditional screenprint texture all with a sunsoaked colour palette and an equally warm sense of humor.

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!
