Paul Samsell is an artist from Grand Rapids, Michigan. He finds inspiration for his artwork by watching cartoons, and showed artistic skill from a young age. Paul has taken many classes at ACT and enjoys using pencil, paper, and inking markers to create his work. His style draws from the 1920’s, ’80s, and 90’s cartoon styles and retro video games. When looking at his art, Paul wants the viewer to notice the method of the work and his skill level. Currently, Paul really enjoys working in black and white but hopes to incorporate color into his work when he feels more comfortable. In the future, Paul wants to be a professional cartoonist.
