Illinois Connection

The author moved to Chicago after graduation and began work on Forlorn Funnies. He currently resides in Chicago where he is still at work on the Forlorn Funnies, various music projects, and illustration work for clients from This American Life to Life Magazine.

Biographical and Professional Information

Even as a child Paul thought he might publish his own comic books one day. While majoring in philosophy and psychology at Ohio State, Hornschemeier was introduced to the graphic novel Ghost World by Daniel Clowes and was impressed. He saw that comics could be a venue for exploring issues that are far from superficial. Following graduation he began publishing his own black and white comics.
