Asking for a friend. How long can a piece of art work be used for, if initially only being commissioned as a one off?

A friend has created art work for a magazine as a one off piece about 2 years ago. Ever since the website of the magazine & the magazine & flyers for events hosted by the magazine have used his design on a number of occasions.
Is there any comeback for this kind of behaviour. He has called them out for it the first time it has happened, to which they apologised and said they wouldn't do it again, but they have. At the minute they have his illustration as their twitter background.
He isn't particularly seeking legal advice but if it helps he's in the UK. More just advice to get them to stop using his artwork.
