Philip Grisewood

Philip Grisewood was born in Worthing in 1978. He graduated from Camberwell College of Art in 2005 with a first class degree in illustration. While studying at Camberwell he was selected by the Association of Illustrators for inclusion in the books Images 28 and Images 29. Since then he has worked as a freelance illustrator and has had work published in various magazines including Little White Lies, Huck and SuperSuper. At this time Philip started producing graphics for the clothing labels Buddhistpunk and House of the Gods. Continuing with his fashion experience Philip currently collaborates with Adam Entwisle and Emma Hales on on the contemporary label 'Horace'.

Philip’s illustrations use a variety of techniques that he has developed through years of experimentation with mixed media. He uses a combination of materials and methods such as drawing, painting, collage and screenprinting to build up densely layered images.

The ‘Weak Worker’ is Philip’s first animation and continues to use the layering processes of his editorial illustration work, producing each frame by hand. The film is a study on the theme of repetition and uses an office as it’s focus. This office environment is referenced through the use of carbon paper in the production of the animation.

The illustration work on this site is complemented by a selection of Philip’s photography, which has been produced as part of his investigations into the uses of different mediums.
