This week, you can get your hands on this gorgeous wallpaper, courtesy of illustrator and designer Stanley Chow.

His career began as a fashion illustrator for the likes of Just Seventeen, Sugar and More magazines and storyboarding Head & Shoulders adverts.

Since then, Chow has gone on to work with clients including Marie Claire, Elle, GQ, Marks & Spencer, BT, Vodafone, Pfizer, Yahoo, Clarks, BBC and Channel 4. He also received a Grammy nomination for his work with The White Stripes in 2008.

"This is an illustration of Manchester city centre: the city that I was brought up in, the city that I love," Chow explains. "It was intended for my daughters's bedroom when I did it, which is why I illustrated it with simple geometric shapes, like children's building blocks.

"If you know the city of Manchester at all, I think it is instantly recognisable," Chow continues. "For instance, there is always a helicopter buzzing over the city and even when it's sunny there's a dark raincloud lurking around the corner. The numbered buses that I've added are probably the most used in the city too."
