Paul Panfalone is an artist, designer, photographer, and visual storyteller originally from East Aurora, NY. After a brief stint in Southern California, he currently resides in Cleveland, Ohio.
He spent his childhood creating comic book characters and playing with cap guns. An affinity for action figures set him on a crash course with art in the early 1980's. He holds two degrees in graphic design and creative communication, both earned thanks in large part to caffeine-fueled all-nighters working to the sounds of film scores.
He's worked in the creative industry for almost two decades, honing his skills as an art director and graphic designer while spawning a fistful of successful personal projects along the way.
