Phil Cannon is a treasured contributor here at SLUG. Starting in the summer of 2010 as an illustrator, Phil’s self-taught style is unique and uncanny—a little bit dark and a little bit ugly, with attention paid to every little detail.
Though his characters are sinister, Phil’s a well-rounded personality, living as a ski bum up at Brighton over the winter and spending the rest of the year attending Comic Con, working with horses and doing smarty pants activities like studying history, physics, math and chemistry—oh, and cultivating his epic beard. In addition to illustrating, Phil’s also a reliable distro driver, delivering mags every month throughout the valley. Catch a glimpse of his work within the pages of SLUG, on our Localized posters, or head over to the Urban Arts Gallery next month for some Star Wars–themed art!
