Today, Phil Disley is acknowledged as one of Britain's foremost illustrators.
Born and now living in Liverpool, Phil studied Foundations of Art before entering and graduating from Newcastle University with studies in Graphics.
His award-winning career began modestly with an illustration in the "Big Issue" in '93. Since then, his work has become a regular fixture in many of Britain's, and now the world's, most prestigious publications, as well as numerous book covers. His longest running column, 'Wry Society", is for the multi-award-winning Financial Times, and he's a regular contributor to the Lawn Tennis Association's 'Ace Tennis Magazine'.
Recently, Phil's political works for The Guardian and Independent newspapers have been awarded with inclusion in the British Cartoon Archive. He's also been awarded by the Association of Illustrators and his work for Classic FM's 'Hall of Fame' series can now be seen in the Lebrecht Archives.
A few of his clients include: The Spectator, Financial Times, Esquire, GQ, The London Evening Standard, Tatler, Marketing Week, The Times, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, LA Times and Us Magazine.
