Scallop Fishermen, Fowey, Cornwall. January 1992
Fowey scallop fishermen, who were captured outside the Lugger Inn in a photograph in 1990, have been painted in oils. Sussex artist Pat Yendell saw the photo and was so impressed she decided to paint it. The result was loaned to the Lugger, and locals fundraised to buy a second painting which they commissioned from Pat, to be donated to the town. Fishermen, from left to right: Matthew Jane, Chris Curtis, Mike Dunn, Dave Thomas, Darren Vincent, Brendan Benson and Jason Powell, along with Spot the dog. Missing from this photograph is Mark Douglas, second from left in the painting. Photographer: Jonathan Barker .

Debenham & Freebody advert, Diana Mitford
Advertisement for smart celes sports jumpers from the department store Debenham and Freebody in Wigmore Street, London, featuring an illustration of a model who looks curiously like Diana Mitford in a famous publicity photograph taken of her while on honeymoon in Taormina. Her honeymoon was earlier in 1929 so it's highly likely the artist was inspired by the photograph even though the outfit itself is a little different to what Diana wore. Date: 1929
