Portfolio Website: Philip John McDermott
I had the pleasure of meeting Philip for coffee and gave him a personal tutorial on how to easily build a website using Artist Run Website. I think we spent a good part of an afternoon chatting - lots of great art related topics on our minds. Philip has recently quit working as a full-time scenic painter for the movie industry and made the jump to earning his living from his art. He has been a key-figure in the movie industry here and mentored many young painters. A lot of popular techniques that are used in the industry were invented solely by Philip. It just came to him naturally. This is obvious in his work.
