About me
Artist & Author Illustrator and narrative designer specialising in character creation. First comic book published by Razorbill/Penguin US Summer 2021 His character designs have adorned everything from cakes to adult toys and everything in between – which, taken literally is quite an unpleasant image – but fairly appropriate for his cute creations that on closer inspection often have darker undertones. Usually skipping back and forth between working on games and kid’s TV and working for clients such as Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Sony, Nintendo, Cadbury’s and AussieBum Phil happily doodles his characters wherever he can and for whoever wants them. He was the last person to write and illustrate the adventures of one of the oldest comic characters in the world, Korky the Cat in the Dandy. But still claims that the reason that venerable comic stopped being published after 75 years has nothing to do with him.

  • Pride Month Digital Sticker PackGIPHY asked me to created their animated gif sticker pack for Pride Month. You can use them on all your social meeds - wherever you need animations. I'm getting about 10 million downloads a day, which is crazy and it's always nice seeing them pop up on a celebrity's feed. You can see them all prancing around here.
