Phil Dunne

Illustrator

Dublin, Ireland
My name is Phil and I am an artist currently based in Dublin, Ireland.

I am available for hire worldwide and interested in any project big or small. You can email me at contact@lovetherobot.com or send me a direct message via Behance. Please note that I do not take on any unpaid work or commissions.

My work is both hand drawn and digitally edited and coloured. I create my art in traditional mediums like pencil, pen, ink and watercolour and edit and colour it using Adobe Photoshop CC 2017.

I have worked as an artist since 2006 on a variety of projects, exhibitions, books and self initiated art projects. My work is influenced by comic books, vintage cartoons, street art and fashion photography featuring male models.

Slainté!
