Phillip Vaughan portrait

Phillip has taught at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in Dundee since 2005. He is the Course Director for DJCAD's MSc Animation & VFX programme and the creator and Module Leader of the undergraduate Comic Art & Graphic Novels Expansive Module.

Phillip got the comics bug when he was zapped by Doomlord’s energiser ring back in 1982. Phillip has over 20 years experience in CGI, working as a storyboard artist, 3D animator and full motion video cut-scene producer.

Phillip has worked on high profile jobs such as Braveheart, Star Trek, Deathtrap Dungeon, Tom and Jerry, Teletubbies, and Wallace & Gromit, subsequently working as a cut-scene producer on Farscape, a Jim Henson production. He also worked on Brave and the highly successful State of Emergency franchise. He also realised a lifelong ambition and worked with the creators of Judge Dredd on a video game project for Digital Animations.

Most recently he completed all of the animation and front-end work on Superman for DC Comics/Warner Bros, a No.1 selling App on iOS and is also the Art Director for the highly successful Saltire comic series created by DiamondSteel Comics.

Phillip still works as a freelance animator.
