Paul is a ballpoint pen artist living in Escondido, CA with his wife and three children. He grew up skateboarding and drawing in a small town in Wisconsin before moving to San Diego for sunnier skies and maybe a job at a skate shop. His drawing took a backseat for nearly 20 years as he pursued a career in skateboarding that ultimately led him to the Marketing Director position at TransWorld SKATEboarding. Inspired by the talents of his new coworkers and friends, he decided to start a ballpoint pen sketch of his friend Wes Kremer. At age 39 after 20 years of not creating a single art piece, Paul rediscovered his talent and love of drawing.
