Return To Melanin: Hands and Feet of Bronze
Phillip was commissioned to draw hands and feet of bronze for the Return The Melanin Project. Return the Melanin re-imagines society’s understanding of what Jesus looked like by mass producing a visual image of him based on research in various fields. The project commissions artists of color to create works that are transformed into free buttons and stickers for the general public.
Long Road to Revolution
Phillip was invited to showcase his journalism comic Long Road to Revolution at the Marching Forward Symposium at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The symposium showcases the work of more than 30 local scholars and artists whose work involves civil rights and social justice.
