Human being, male, son, brother, father, cartoonist, yogi, writer, poet, masseur, friend, lover, loved, teacher, student, explorer, wizard, fool, healer, patient; each archetype moving into the foreground to embrace a lesson, a shift, an exposure to what is present.
Appearing as “the cartoonist” Paul’s ‘scratchings’ have shown in books, magazines, newspapers, T-shirts, bathroom walls and even in syndication with a feature that appeared in the classified section of 1 or 2 papers around the country imaginatively named — “Strictly Classified”.
The Cartoon Wizard
Patrons of the arts clamor for more of the “wizardry” that constantly spews forth from the strangely fertile mind and hand of this spindly gnome. Paul creates wildly, unique and colorful characters and illustrations with his blend of lightness and slightly ‘bent’ style that one will always remember.
The Cartoon Wizard is not sure when he began this expression. Those close to him say about 5 years old, others say he’s just finishing up what he started “long ago and far away…”
In the Works…
Created with long-time friend and watercolorist, Theodocia “Teddy” Swecker, The Cartoon Wizard and the Color Witch is a celebration of the dance between the form and the non- form, giving kids (and adults) a fun way to “see” what is right in front of them and allow their creativity to blossom.
