Paul is one of my favorite people and favorite artists.
His sketchbook is a thing of eldritch beauty and horror.
And his finished work – whether for HR Giger or film – is wonderful.
This is very small sample, but hopefully one that will whet your appetite:
This portrait of my beautiful Scrabble-partner Saamanta is a kind of happy accident.
It’s not the final version that will appear in the mystery project I’ve been working on – but it’s become its own sort of finished piece.
While that’s never really happened before, as I move into this new (to me) technique of working up large pencils and then painting, perhaps such accidents will happen more often….
