“I’m doing work to make myself laugh.”
Paul is a cartoonist, illustrator and university professor who applies his skill and sense of humor to Editorial Cartoons, Comics and Paintings, as well as Sculpture, Metal Work, Furniture Design and Woodcarving.
The work begins in Paul's sketchbook. “I've been carrying a sketchbook since 1975, documenting my surroundings and writing down ideas. I prefer to use a Blackwing pencil on Strathmore paper, but lately I'll draw in my trusty sketchbook, scan it into the computer, and finalize the drawing on my Wacom Cintiq."
Regionally, Paul has shown at the WMRA Studios, Larkin Gallery and the Wooden Trout in Harrisonburg. His work has also been featured in the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley – Winchester, Edison Place Gallery – Washington DC, and the Society of Illustrators – New York.
Paul holds a BFA in Illustration from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, and an MFA in Illustration from the University of Hartford. He is a member of the Society of Illustrators – NY, and the Illustrator’s Club of DC, MD and VA.
Paul is an Associate Professor of Graphic Communication at the University of Maryland University College in Adelphi, MD. He also lectures locally at Shenandoah University, the Shenandoah Arts Council, and local schools.
He lives in Strasburg Virginia with his family, surrounded by some very nice neighbors that aren't put off by the occasional roar of chainsaw carving.
