RECAP—sketchXchange with Rory Phillips

If you’re a regular sketchXchange goer, you’ll know that Rory Phillips is one of our most faithful attendees. We were pretty excited when he agreed to be our August guest speaker. Rory made the event quite special by sharing his journey as an artists, and made us laugh with his charm and wit. He even made a special screen printed illustration for everyone who attended!

From his early childhood dreams of joining a gang—only so he could design their logo—to being in the Marines, we learned more about how design was always part of his life. Each life experience has made Rory the artist he is today and his story was very inspiring.

Rory, thanks again for an evening with a lot of heart, infused with your contagious energy and a dash of comedy.

Lastly, thank you all for coming and making it a great night of conversation and awesome sketching.
