bright and breezy
A lot of people (usually my family) say 'Philip why is your art so dark and gloomy?" and I usually reply "I need a martini" Anyway here (above) is an example of my lighter more colourful side. It's for a magazine called Mortgage Monthly (yes you heard right) and I produce four of these covers a year.I really enjoy creating these illustrations because the art director gives me complete freedom.My family likes these illustrations because they are happy and joyful, unlike my other work which is, shall we say a little deeper.I sent this illustration to my sister and she said 'Philip why don't you create more art like this?" to which I replied "I need a martini".
So for the readers who prefer the lighter side of my brain go to www.anicecupoft.com
