Philip Hood has an incredibly detailed and representational style and has worked in many different areas of illustration, from decorative paintings, wall murals, caricatures and even commissions to create copies of 17th century Dutch paintings (all perfectly legal). His murals can be seen in the UK, Ireland, Denmark, Turkey and Abu Dhabi and his experience working for humourous magazines has led to drawing caricatures at corporate events. Philip is very successful in publishing and has illustrated numerous books for major UK and American publishers, including classic fiction, The Thirty-Nine Steps, Diary of a Nobody and children’s non fiction, such as Pop-Up Space Shuttle. He has recently been working with Templar on their charming StoryWorld series, Stories of the Sea and The Magical Toy Box. Philip was shortlisted for the 2009 and 2010 Sunday Times Watercolour Prize, exhibited at the Bankside and Mall Galleries London. In 2011 he contributed to the Royal Society of Portrait Painters exhibition at the Mall Galleries.
