Philip "Phil" Jimenez (born July 12, 1970) is an American comic book writer, artist and penciller.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, and later Orange County, California, he moved to New York City to attend college at the School of Visual Arts where he now teaches a life-drawing course as part of the undergraduate cartooning program. He began working at DC Comics when he was 21. In 1992, he came out and his first open relationship was with the man who hired him at DC that same year, Neal Pozner. His first published work was four pages in the DC miniseries War of the Gods (1991).
He is probably best known for his work as writer/artist on Wonder Woman (2000-2003), main penciller of the limited series crossover event Infinite Crisis (2005-2006) or his collaborations with writer Grant Morrison on New X-Men and The Invisibles.
His realistic and richly detailed art style is heavily influenced by the work of artist George Pérez, who worked on The New Teen Titans, Crisis on Infinite Earths and Wonder Woman during the 1980's. In fact, a large part of Jimenez's work is related to these same three works by Pérez: Jimenez has worked repeatedly in several Titans-related series (some issues of the ongoing series New Titans and Team Titans, and the miniseries JLA/Titans Vol 1, The Return of Donna Troy and Tempest). He was also the main artist of Infinite Crisis, a sequel of Crisis on Infinite Earths, and highly related to the historical limited series, and did a large run as writer and artist of Wonder Woman (just as Pérez did in the 80's).
