Phoneticontrol (born Eric John William Broers in 1975) is a San Francisco based illustrator, muralist and curator. He also is a designer of websites, figures and clothing. In 1999 he moved from the suburbs to Chicago and pursued record label management and illustration. Finding that he had to choose one over the other, he decided on visual over audio. After visiting SF for an art show he was involved in 2005, he completely fell in love with the city. One year later, he packed up his cat and his stuff and pushed west to the Left Coast. He now lives in the Hayes Valley with his wife, Alice Koswara and two fighting cats.
