You can buy it here. It features the drawings of 34 artists from around the globe, who all, surprise surprise, use pen and ink in one way or another. It was published in the UK (Frances Lincoln) in 2016, and also in French, German, Spanish and Portuguese.
The second thing is that I have an article about sketchcrawls (that means getting together to draw on location as a group) in the April 2017 issue of the Artist magazine, out now. There's a link to the article here.

We're back from a family weekend break in York, having met up with Daughter 1, who is studying at Newcastle University. There is a lot of history to encounter in York, and we intersperse the tourist things with cafes and cake, like you do.
We brave the walk around the city walls in winds and stuttering sleet, and warm up (relatively speaking) in the minster. The 16th-century Rose Window (top image), which I drew to the atmospheric soundtrack of choral evensong, survived fire damage in 1984 after the minster was struck by lightning. The building's stained glass windows – some up to 600 years old – are amazing, casting light onto the stonework even in these wintry days.
