    I’m *so* glad you shared his artwork. I knew he was at college; I saw him in conversation with someone (David Mach??) at the National Gallery last year when he mentioned it.
    Good stuff. Thank you

  2. Ken Hare says:

    And thank you Iona for a great interview. Really interesting

  3. Stuart Murphy says:

    That was an interesting discussion.

    I’ve been following Phill’s art on Instagram for some time. The imagery and text in his collages are always of interest, it’s a fascinating medium.

    Great to hear he’s a fan of Ray Johnson and mail art too. How To Draw A Bunny is definitely worth a watch.

    Thanks for this. Really entertaining. I’ve just finished 4 years doing fine art at DJCAD, I’m the same age as Phil and actually pretty much had an identical foundation year experience. Good luck with the next three years…

    Good interview. Entertaining & real. Worth a listen if you are swithering.
