After completing a degree in illustration, Mister Phil spent many years as a web designer before swapping the code for crayons (0.8mm Mitsubishi uni pens to be precise) and embarking on an illustration career in a now-or-never type way.
Things started to pay off and he has now worked for clients including Vitaminwater, Computer Arts Magazine and the National Gallery and is a member Tumblr's Creatrs team, a hand picked bunch of creatives form across the globe who provide digital content for brands across alll social media.
He lives and works in Brighton UK.
From Code to Crayons
When the web design bubble burst I was left covered in soapy water without a towel - it was time for a change.

Come along to my session to hear how having a project (with an optimistic outcome), perseverance, and a little bit of luck can make things happen.
