Online Gallery: Portrait Drawings by Joel Daniel Phillips

In the fall 2015 issue of Drawing magazine, we feature Joel Daniel Phillips as our New and Notable artist. Phillips’ life-size charcoal portrait drawings of San Franciscans embrace the subjects’ individualism. The artist shows them wearing their usual garb and in many cases holding items or props that are meaningful to them. His portrait titled, simply, G is also found on the magazine’s cover.

Here we present a larger sample of the Phillips’ work. To see more, purchase or download your copy of the new issue of Drawing, or subscribe to the magazine.
