    Wonderful images.
    It’s ironic that he calls himself ‘Paul Paper’
    Have you heard of the project:
    ‘It could be me but it’s actually Paul Paper”
    (www.couldbe.me)

  • wow that is weird – some really great stuff submitted to that project

  • Oh yeah! We posted this stuff a couple months ago-
    http://www.beautifuldecay.com/index.php?bdfeedId=490&title=katecopeland

    Like this stuff Kate Copeland did…
    But we were confused about the project exactly…are they all Paul Paper or is it a project he organized? Hmmm….
    Any thoughts to solving this mystery would be appreciated.

  • Melissa

    The second theory would make him a bit of a narcissist and it’s definite that the artwork was submitted by a variety of artists.
    I believe that Paul Paper – the mysterious artist – heard of this project. Found it insightful and saw some truth in it. He might feel undeserving of the publicity he is receiving. Like they say “taking up another artist’s space”

  • i was lucky enough to be asked to contribute to “could be me” by paul himself. it is a really neat project, seeing how that sentence is interpreted by artists of different principals, from illustration, to photography, to collage work- etc. i love his work and am glad you profiled him jeff. his imagery is beautiful, encapsulating a sense of wonder, vulnerability, + modesty. i just received his tiny postcards of melancholy in the mail and they made my day !

  • Hm, sounds like he organized it himself then according to Jennilee?
    Guess he’s a bit of a narccist then, huh Melissa. Hahaha.

  • Melissa

    Oh, I’m so embarrassed.
    Sorry,
    I should stop blurting out everything that comes to mind 🙁

  • hahah no i think she was agreeing – the project is cool, the sentence itself makes no sense to me either, other than it being an example of self-marketing genius.

  • Jon

    design for mankind revealed some extra details on the could be me project on their issue five

  • Haha no, yeah Jeff’s right, Im totally agreeing Melissa. Maybe I’ll start a project with a bunch of artists drawing portraits of me called….”Sasha totally rules dude!”

  • Melissa

    Haha,
    Well I’m glad we solved this mystery.
    Let’s all give ourselves a pat on the back,
    or start a Paul-Paper-Project for that matter,
    whatever one does to elevate one’s self-esteem. 🙂

  • great work. thanks for putting it here
