Philip Joseph Felix passed away December 23, 2023 in Tucson, Arizona at the age of 61. He is survived by his children, Kai and Naomi; his companion, Paula Solin; his mother, Elvira and sister and brother, Julia and Paul. He is predeceased by his daughter, Maya; father, Felipe and brother, David.

Philip was a master artist with long careers in illustration, animation design and tattoo work and was the owner of Red Sky Studio on Fourth Avenue. Born in Phoenix on June 2, 1962, Philip grew up there and in Bisbee, where he graduated high school in 1980. A precocious talent, he was soon tapped to work at Hallmark Cards in Kansas City, Missouri. From there he left for California to work as an animation character designer and visual development artist, first for television on shows like 'The Original Ghostbusters and Kidd Video', and later for films such as 'Shrek.' At the same time Philip started a stellar painting career, creating fantastical art for prints and for collectors in his own distinctive style.

At Red Sky Studio he combined an art gallery for displaying his art with a tattoo parlor where he created individually designed intricate body art for hundreds of customers for over twenty years. He was dedicated to his craft and shared his passion with everyone he knew. He was a mentor and friend, father, son and brother and will be loved and missed always.
