From the beginning

As the story goes…

Phantom Illustrator.ca started up in Calgary, Canada in 1992 by Brian Smith.

Smith began pushing pencils and crayons across paper at a very early age. In 1974 he became a newspaper graphic artist-illustrator, then pressed on to earn a Diploma in the Visual Arts. He received a major in Visual Communications from the Alberta College of Art in 1980.

Spanning over 40 years as a graphic designer and illustrator, Smith’s sharpened skills produced high quality, professional visual communications material . He has provided these services within the Alberta energy sector.

Now semi-retired, Smith selectively chooses projects. Ones that allow him to explore the full capacity of his interests—for clients with projects that are beneficial to society—and fun for Smith to sink his mind into.
