Philip Hood Portfolio

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 StepsDiary of a Nobody and children’s non fiction, such as Pop-Up Space Shuttle. Philip was shortlisted for the 2009 Royal Watercolour Society Sunday Times Prize, exhibited at Bankside Gallery, London.

Clients include:
BBC Active, Caspian Publishing, Constable & Robinson, Egmont Children’s Books, Faber & Faber, Orpheus Books, Oxford University Press, Penguin Books, Simon & Schuster, Templar Publishing, The Pleasant Company (US), Transworld.
