Welcome to the David McPhail Illustrations website.  You may wonder what happens to the original illustrations used in publishing David’s books.  David provides some of the illustrations to Surroundings Art Gallery for sale.  He has been a contributing artist at Surroundings for many years.   

We created this website exclusively to show what is available for purchase.  You don’t have to be a parent or a grandparent to appreciate his talent.  His original illustrations can be used in many different settings to provide a unique conversation piece.

We encourage you to look at his work and contact us if you are interested in purchasing any of the illustrations or have any questions about his work.

Note:  Surroundings Art Gallery is now closed and David’s illustrations have been returned to him.  However, if you see something you like, let us know and we will see if it is available.
