Phillip Stein Jönsson studied drawing and graphic arts at the School of Applied Art in Copenhagen. In 1985, his first comic, 'Hr. Et Eller Andets oplevelser' ('Mr. One or Other's Experiences') appeared, and also his first album, 'Manden der Kunne Undværes' ('The Dispensible Man'), a political thriller in a loose, sketchy style. In the same style was 'Dr. Vogels Sanatorium', which was published one year later. Jönsson made the comic strip 'Simple Striber' ('Simple Strips') for Politiken, a humorous, satirical comic about people in the restless society of the 1980s.
