Philip Barrett is an illustrator, designer and comic artist originally from Co. Donegal and currently living in Dublin. He has been self-publishing comics since 2001, including writing and drawing 9 issues of his catch-all title 'Matter' and contributing to numerous anthologies. In 2010 the Verbal Arts Centre in Derry published Philip's 'best-of' collection 'The Human in Me'.
