He also works with Deborah Harty (Loughborough University) as the creative drawing collaboration ‘humhyphenhum’ and with Russell Marshall ( Loughborough University) as ‘Marshall and Sawdon’.

Phil's current drawings are almost exclusively pen and ink and loosely concerned with the notion of aggregates.
