Paul Townsend is a an automotive artist that is currently serving his country in the U.S. Navy. When Paul isn't busy protecting his country from all enemies, foreign and domestic, he likes to draw cars, especially the custom type. Paul boasts that he has had no formal training what-so-ever, but has been drawing since he was knee high to an ant hill.
Paul's portfolio consists of t-shirt designs for several small and large car clubs, car shows, events, and individuals. Paul also does fantasy illustrations, project and concept design and pin-ups. He has even dabbled in photography within the Navy, and apparently does quite a bit of airbrushing, too. In 1992, Paul picked up an airbrush and that was it... he was hooked. Now, airbrusing is a major segment within his artistic talents.
Adding to his ever expanding portfolio of works, Paul has airbrushed items as small as car tags and as large as entire vehicles to include hoods, tailgates, interior items, guitars, motorcycles, mailboxes, textiles, and generally anything that will hold paint. What Paul likes most about airbrushing is the freedom that is granted to the artist, from the tightest lines, to shading and color mixing.
Paul's portfolio gives a true sense of what he does, but it also hints to government conspiracies, aliens, and other items of interest to him. All of this lends a bit of mystery to his work. Keeping his mind open to ideas and other possibilities has kept Paul going and has made his art a worthwhile endeavor.
