Joel Daniel Phillips is a young artist based in San Francisco, California. His artwork focuses on classical draftsmanship which result as large-scale images in most cases. Inspired by the depth and breadth of human experience, he strives to tell the stories etched in the faces of those around him. We are captured by his photo realistic and epic detailed drawing style and by his subjects – they are mainly ordinary looking people, which one could have encountered too while purchasing. Their faces, clothes, poses and requisites tell stories like books do.
