is an artist & illustrator & comics creator.
Paul Hammond is an award-winning Canadian artist, illustrator, and comics creator working from his house in the woods of Halifax, Nova Scotia. His work is bold & playful, with regular dips into the realm of the weird. He employs frequent use of hand-drawn lettering, pattern and texture, with a combination of traditional drawing methods and digital techniques. He thinks mistakes are beautiful, and likes to leave them in when he's allowed.
Educated at NSCAD University (BFA 2005), he cut his teeth designing & screen-printing gigposters & fine art prints under the name Yorodeo with long-time collaborative partner Seth Smith for almost no money.
Paul currently works in many areas including kid lit, commercial illustration, editorial, & concept art for animation.
