Paul Thompson

Who are you?
Paul Thompson. I’m an artist and writer, working in digitalart, photography and comics.

What have you done / what are you doing?
In comics: Tales of the Hollow Earth is now in its third issue: Dark goings on in a coastal city of peculiar institutions, paperfolding, weird tales, dangerous catering and unreliable narrators. In addition to comics, I've had several exhibitions of digital artworks and photography, and I occasionally write and draw for other people. I'm currently working with Cuttlefish Comics on several top secret projects.

Why comics?
Placing pictures in sequence will create a story for the viewer, whether it was intended or not. Putting words too close to an otherwise unrelated picture will set a world in motion. Most of it happens in the viewers head, and it’s much greater than the sum of its parts. The comics creators I admire have supernatural control over this, and from this unstable chemistry are able to wield extremely evocative storytelling.
