Biography

Paul L. Clark is an internationally acclaimed visual communicator with a great depth of diverse experience - but it’s the breadth of his 40 years work that is truly staggering. His timeless designs and multi-platform creative ingenuity are seen in hundreds of hours of television shows and in movies, on web sites, in the corporate arena, nationally and internationally, and on shelves in stores and homes worldwide.

From animation and special FX to graphic design and fine art, Paul is an artist in every sense of the word. His award-winning career has led him to creating, writing, illustrating (authorstrating) and designing children’s content, including the ‘Scribble & Grin Collection’ through the publishing company 'inspirtainment ink' he founded along with his wife Mary Giuffre - an internationally recognized award-winning animation & television producer, consultant and author/writer.

Paul loves all of this work so much that he coined a word several years ago to best describe it - he calls it his occupassion©
