About the Artist
Philip Anderson has been doing editorial illustration for thirty years, commissioned by newspapers and magazines such as The New York Times, PC World, and Kiplinger''s. Anderson studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York and met his wife Barbara, gallery director of The Drawing Room in St. George, Maine, when he was doing freelance illustration at Business Week, where she was an assistant art director. His work is broadly influenced by Picasso, Miro and Klee, while his sense of humor comes not only from his parents but from Dr. Seuss, Charlie Chaplin and Ernie Kovacs.
Represented by New York''s Gerald and Cullen Rapp, one of America''s top illustration agencies, Anderson has been a regular contributor to various periodicals over the years, including Esquire, Archeology, and Outside Magazine. Since 2006, he has been called upon regularly to enhance Everybody''s Business,Ben Stein''s column in The New York Times Sunday business section. Illustrating Stein''s chatty musings on the economy with his colorful, humorous collage work has been an enjoyable way for Anderson to keep up with the world of finance and add to his already voluminous body of work documenting American culture, business and innovation over three decades.
