A little about Phillip Martin Phillip has braved earthquakes and typhoons in the Philippines, survived malaria five times in Africa, faced a voodoo priestess in Haiti, and lived to tell about multiple bus, truck, and motorcycle accidents.

As a full time artist, Phillip draws cartoons for websites, paints murals in far off corners of the globe to brighten the lives of children, and does free lance work when it comes his way.

When he's not traveling, Phillip makes his home in Ohio in the USA. A wonderful use of Phillip's art
