Full Description

Done with biro this sketch of Ed Sheeran was made during recording sessions. The artist shows Ed momentarily glancing up towards us. I’m told by the artist Ed was using his tablet scrolling through hundreds of messages from fans. Ed is seen relaxed and happy as he sits for Phillip here. The artist shows another side of himself in this portrait opting for biro than graphite. This suggests to me that in the environment of creating music and art all mediums were explored and nothing was off limits. The crosshatching style is a particular highlight here and displays Phillip’s proficiency as an artist who possesses the confidence and skill to bring out of his creativity in whichever medium he chooses.

His ultra realistic portraits present the viewer with not only an honest study of the subject but also a deeper connection with them. Phillip tends to punch right through the barriers and show what lies beneath.
