By Phil McDonald

Philip John Taylor, better known as Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor, was the drummer for the rock band Motörhead. There is a good reason that we have immortalised him via illustration — because we were asked to... Kind of! The lovely folks at S40 and S41 Local Magazine, the best independent magazine (in our opinion) that circulates throughout the sunny side of Chesterfield, asked us to illustrate the front cover for both the S40 & S41 magazines as part of their drive to showcase local artists, designers and photographers to their readership. The brief was to create an illustration that could represent Chesterfield. We decided to focus our attention on lesser known 'local' celebrities and came to find out that the mighty 'Philthy-Animal' hailed from Hasland, Chesterfield. Below you will see both front covers (without S40/S41 branding I'm afraid), available in two flavours — yellow and red. Want to see more similar projects — head over to our case study page.
