discovered his inner creativity as a young child. He was continuously drawing when he had the chance; even when he shouldn't have.
His favorite spot was his parents' livingroom walls. They didn't appreciate
this. He gradually learned discipline and tempered his drawing to his drawing pads and
sketchbooks. His parents appreciated this.
While in high school he loved to dissect frogs and
thought he would become a famous surgeon. His hopes were dashed when he barely
passed biology (to his teacher's relief). Paul didn't care much for math and always avoided difficult problems. After graduating from
high school he applied to several schools and decided Massachusetts College of
Art would be fun.
After graduating Paul started commissioned
illustration assignments for magazines, designstudios and educational
publishers. He has experience as a digital instructor at Montserrat College of
Art and Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston.
He loves to relax and play music with the Harmony
Gritz band. He is quite sure his harmonica playing is scaring the neighbors'
cats and dogs.

* A note about last-minute bidding:
If you are used to online auctions that end at an exact, given second, please
know that the KidLitPhil auctions don’t work quite that way. Each auction ends
when I post the “Auction closed” comment. I do that when my computer turns to
10pm EST, but because I have multiple auctions to close at that time (also
because I am human) it will not be precisely at 10pm EST. At any rate, the
winning bid is the high bid before the Auction Closed comment, even if the time
on your computer reads slightly after 10:00. Thanks for understanding!
Winning bidder must donate the winning bid amount to a designated charity
organization and provide a copy of the receipt within three days of
For physical items, unless otherwise noted, donor pays standard shipping within
the U.S.; winning bidder pays for express shipping or for shipping outside the
