5 x 5 Submission 25 - Phil Scroggs

Phil Scroggs

Phil Scroggs' Website
Phil Scroggs grew up in Augusta, Georgia, where he fed his right-brain tendencies with heaping portions of Saturday morning cartoons and Atari video games.

After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography from the University of Georgia, Phil started his career in Atlanta as a graphic designer. After a few years in the printing business, he transitioned into a software instructor for various Atlanta training centers, including New Horizons, Portfolio Center and Emory University.

In June of 2000, Phil drove across the country to set up shop in Seattle. Fueled by caffeine and pop culture, he currently spends his time as a painter, illustrator and web designer.

His digital work is created in Adobe Illustrator. But, he sometimes also incorporates elements from Photoshop. In his non-digital art, Phil uses acrylic paint on canvas and found objects. Here again, he sometimes features his photographs in mixed media pieces. Phil's work is influenced by such pop art icons as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. It often features recycled materials and symbols seen in southern folk art.

Phil's work can be found on the web, in books, newspapers and magazines,.. and on public and private gallery walls around the country.
