Retuta's Tumblr

The Visual and Written Chronicles of Phillip.

Who Be He?
They call him Phillip Retuta. He calls himself a visual & interactive designer, motion graphics artist, and illustrator -- an all-around artist. He's 29 years old, from Chicago, living in NYC, and has a lovely husky-lab mix named Nico. Currently employed as Senior Designer at a digital and social media firm.

What's All This Then?
Well, it's a fairly random tumblog of current and upcoming art endevours, photographs, comic sketches, creative philosophies, inspirations, and generally incomplete art projects.

So yeah, it's like a sketchbook.

"Subway Parasite" by Frédéric Eyl, for a Digital Media course at the University of the Arts in Berlin.

It’s such an interesting concept. Too bad you can’t get away with this in NYC without getting arrested. “If you see something, say something.”
