    This blog serves as a collection of past, present and future projects from the illustration studio of Chet Phillips. There will also be spotlights on creative people I admire and how-tos, mixed with an occasional bit of silliness culled from the Intertubes added in for seasoning. Thank you for visiting.

    Austin Flea- Valentine’s Day Style

    Posted By on February 7, 2014


    If you’re in the Austin area on Saturday, come on over to the Austin Flea event and take care of all your Valentine’s Day shopping. 40+ ultra-talented artists will be presenting their handmade creations, including ChetArt. Located at Opal Divine’s Penn Field from 11AM-5PM. Skip the stale gas station box of chocolates for something truly unique and fun. (We all know you’re better than that.)

    More info here along with a list of vendors.

    Top 5 Reasons to Attend Saturday’s Austin Flea:

    1. 40+ artists offering amazing handmade creations.

    2. Complete your Valentine’s Day shopping early, allowing you to concentrate fully on your plans for world domination and/or cleaning out the garage.

    3. Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, New Year’s Eve and the Super Bowl are over. The Austin Flea fills the void with fun until your celebration plans ramp up for Canadian Heritage Day.

    4. The sad gas station box of chocolates just won’t do it for you.

    5. 4 out of 5 doctors say it’s good for your heart to attend. (the fifth is sullen, heartless bastard that takes joy in nothing.)

    Classic Poetry For Dogs: Why Do I Chase Thee

    Posted By on February 4, 2014


    I had the pleasure of supplying 16 portraits of famous literary figures in the guise of dogs for “Classic Poetry for Dogs: Why Do I Chase Thee.” The talented Jessica Swaim expertly expands on my series concept Literary Pets series trading cards with her own hilarious character bios. In addition, the book is filled with her outrageously clever poems with a decidedly canine twist. She has a wonderful talent for crafting puns. Published and beautifully packaged by Gibbs Smith, it’s 88 pages of fur-faced fun for dog and poetry lovers alike.
