Cartoonist / Caricature Artist
London, ON, Canada
Philip Chandler is a cartoonist and caricature artist from London Ontario. He considers himself a "multi-medium"artist but mostly enjoys drawing cartoons and doing caricatures of people.
Philip participated in the 2 year Beal-Arts program in London before attending Sheridan College in Oakville. He graduated from their Classical Animation program in 1992 and worked for 2 years at both Nelvana and Pheonix Animation studios in downtown Toronto. While the big corporate studios converted to new digital CGI formats, Philip preferred to stay with traditional mediums and started doing caricatures in mid 90's, working at several resort locations such as Sauble beach and Ontario Place.
2 years ago he registered as an official business under "Chandlerarts" and has started doing caricatures again on a regular basis for events again.
Besides drawing, he also enjoys working in acrylic, watercolour, chalk pastels and now digital mediums like photoshop.
As an avid vegan animal lover he also enjoys painting animal and pet portraits. He is also considered a "sci-fi geek" (and a big "Godzilla" nerd) and has done many classic sci-fi imagery.
Philip still resides in the Westmount area of London where he operates his small business drawing caricatures for parties and events on a personal basis. He preferrers to do his own personal work this way rather than work for a formal studio.
