Phil's only been in comics a short time really, but he's attracted a legion of fans with his sexy, vintage spy girls and classic approach. He has his contemporary influences like J. Scott Campbell and Adam Hughes, but most of the illustrators Noto digs worked in the 50's and 60's. Guys like Robert McGinnis, Coby Whitmore and the great Bob Peak are all inspirations to this Florida native.
As an ex-Disney clean up artist, Phil brings that experience, plus his appreciation for golden and silver age illustration to all of his comics work. Check out his skills on Birds of Prey, Beautiful Killer, Danger Girl and Scarlett: Declassified, and you'll see what we mean.
In this quick sit-down, we discuss his schooling at Ringling and his past with Disney, his style and growth as a storyteller, plus the unusual way he got into comics. We also touch on Phil's first book of art, Jet Seven, his friendship with Howard Chaykin, being Mr. 4400 and his new Image project, The Infinite Horizon with writer, Gerry Duggan. Our thanks to him for stealing a few minutes away from the show to chat with us.
**And for those who haven't heard yet, Jet Seven is officially sold out!
