Phil Smouse

Graphic Designer

Phil A. Smouse wanted to be a scientist. But scientists have to do a lot of math. And they don't get wonderful letters and pictures from children all over the world. So Phil decided to draw and color instead.

Phil is an award winning author and illustrator of over fifty picture books for children including the million-plus selling Jesus Wants All of Me, the children’s adaptation of Oswald Chambers’ classic devotional, My Utmost for His Highest.

Phil has been a graphic designer, web developer, game programmer, and mobile app developer since the 80’s. He spent several years in the art department at Whitaker House / Anchor Distributors before joining the awesome team at Veritas Press.

He and his wife Annette live in sunny Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Phil loves to golf, fish, dig in the dirt and play guitar. He studied under Joe “handyman” Negri from Mister Rogers Neighborhood, one of the finest jazz guitarists on the planet. Phil and Annette have two amazing children and one beautiful grand-kiddo they love with all their heart.
