My name is Paul Naylor, I’m an illustrator/designer living in San Diego, where I’ve been my whole life. I have been drawing since I was three, and currently specialize in acrylic paintings / illustration, and also enjoy logo and general design. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from the Art Institute of San Diego in graphic design. I’ve been lucky enough to perform and educate for audiences at the San Diego Zoo, Downtown Disney, and many other events around the US. I currently work with my friends and mentors at Launch Live Art, where I paint, perform, and have even played live percussion.
I was drawn to graphic design because I was intrigued by the idea of using typography artistically, and I’ve always loved art associated with underground music and film, especially from decades past where emphasis was heavy on hand-rendering. I also play drums in a couple local bands, and love when visual art and music can be combined. Big influences on my art include a long love of animals, old horror and sci-fi movies, vast natural landscapes (especially Yosemite), Godzilla, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Mid-Century Modern design, and music.
