Catch Simon Spilsbury on Sky Arts programme 'Tate Walks’ Tuesday 6th at 8pm for a documentary and discussion behind his incredible 3 metre illustration of race day at Epsom Derby. Simon was followed by a film crew all day at the event as he was reportage sketching. Following this he had a studio filming session a few weeks later to see his interpretation of The Derby Day, an 1858 William Powell Frith painting. What an opportunity to understand the finesse and skill behind Simon's astute humour and energy, in his truly original artwork. Don't miss out!

ELLO, ELLO, ELLO what have we here? Some rather cheeky chappies from charming folk illustrator Margaux Carpentier for London Zoo - be sure to spot her murals there too. She has such an individual style that sets her apart from other folk illustrators, crossing the boundaries of painting into the lands of graphic vectors - we can't get enough of these cute guys. Thanks Margaux, you've cheered us right up.
