BIO: Paul started working in a comic book store in Newtown Sydney Australia when he was 21. It was at that time he went to his first comic book convention and developed an interest in drawing comic books after seeing David Yardin's portfolio. He produced his first book "How Abstruse". More of a fanzine and a social commentary on his life, his father saw it and suggested that he do it properly. 6 issues later he had drawn his first series "The Cyst" Originally a post appocalyptic story (Later it was converted to a spoof under the guise of Chicky Edward). A writer by the name of Christian Read spotted his work and teamed up with him to do a proposal for a Graphic novel called "Witchking" It was accepted by a local publisher by the name of "Phosphorescent comics".

That series took about 4 years to complete part time. Once he had completed it he moved onto a series by the name of "The Watch". It was only web published. Burnt out he took a break from comic books for about 4 years and then came back to it under the guise of Chicky Edward (His pornstar name). He published two books under that name The Cyst and The Big Burlesque Variety Show. Both were meant to be in poor taste...and they acheived it.

Since then he's self published two sketchbooks and one pin up book "Full Lips". This is most of the books he's worked on in recent times:
