“Since you, like me, have always been and always will be,
now ease into your duty and be that which you must be
for this time and this place right now.”

–Bhagavad Gita

Human being, male, son, brother, father, cartoonist, yogi, writer, poet, masseur, friend, husband, 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.

The Cartoon WizardThe 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.  Paul’s  ‘scratchings’ have shown in books, magazines, newspaper syndication with a feature that appeared in the classified section of  papers around the country called “Strictly Classified”.

Partnering up with long-time friend, watercolorist, and art educator;  Theodocia “Teddy” Swecker, The Cartoon Wizard and the Color Witch – the Spillage Edition is a self-published celebration of the dance between the seeming opposites of form and non- form, giving kids (and adults) a fun way to “see” what is right in front of them and creating a platform to continue their exploration of basic art concepts.
