Bio:
Foglio attended DePaul University in Chicago, and was a member of the university's science fiction club, contributing artwork to the group's fanzine, Effen Essef. After living in the DePaul dorms for a few years, Phil moved to the North Shore neighborhood of Chicago, and hosted weekly Thursday Night Meetings of Chicago-area science fiction fans.

Foglio won two Hugo Awards for Best Fan Artist in 1977 and 1978. In the 1980s he wrote and illustrated a strip entitled "What's New?" for Dragon Magazine from TSR Games, satirizing the world of role-playing games. This exposure gained him considerable fame within the gaming community.

Phil also drew the first known Unix daemons for a limited series of T-shirts in 1976. Around the same time, he illustrated the MythAdventures series of fantasy novels by Robert Lynn Asprin.

In the early 1980s he formed an independent comic book company named ffantasy ffactory with SF artist/writer Freff and SF book editor Melissa Ann Singer. Working with editorial input from Chris Claremont, Phil and Freff wrote and drew a single issue of a science-fiction/historical title called D'Arc Tangent before ending their collaboration in 1984. From there Phil went on to adapt the first volume of the MythAdventures series, Another Fine Myth into a comic book series from WaRP Graphics. This led to a variety of other work in the comics business, including comics from DC Comics, Marvel Comics, and First Comics, as well as his own work such as Buck Godot.

In the 1990s, he met and married his wife Kaja. The two of them contributed art to the collectible card game Magic: The Gathering from Wizards of the Coast (and resurrected "What's New?" for WotC's Duelist magazine). Foglio also co-founded Palliard Press and published additional comic books, including a new Buck Godot series and the whimsical erotic series XXXenophile.

The Foglios later founded Studio Foglio and began to produce the retro-fantasy series Girl Genius.

Phil Foglio has a recurring role as the emcee of Comic-Con International's masquerade event. In an attempt to keep the audience civil, he typically placates the audience by letting them shout out the number of the costume/entry. This is an almost vain hope that they will participate in this manner in lieu of shouting verbal abuses and such at less-than-stellar entries. In the past, actors such as Robert Trebor have been asked to emcee the event. However, Phil's more stern attitude and stubborn insistence that the crowd exhibit some modicum of etiquette seems to be a successful formula.
