March Artist of the Month
Paul Howalt graduated with a BFA from Arizona State University in 1991. He now works as an illustrator and designer in the Phoenix area.
His mischievously playful and graphic approach has evolved from an unusually voracious appetite for comics when he was a child. Paul’s wife feels that he has way too many toys for someone his age, and needs to be disciplined more than their two kids. He is hopelessly addicted to Mt. Dew, Twizzlers, loud music and Ebay.
Paul’s clients include: The New York Times, MTV, Disney, HBO, The NFL, Sports Illustrated, Target, Hasbro, Mattel, CNN, Virgin, RCA, Adidas, Levi’s, Urban Outfitters, Pepsi, Hershey’s, Kellogg’s, General Mills, Forbes Magazine, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, People Magazine, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines and Earnest & Julio Gallo Winery.
Howalt has spoken at numerous design events including the HOW Design Conference. He has also been interviewed by numerous industry publications, blogs and podcasts.
Paul’s work is on permanent display at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York and has been awarded numerous awards in shows such as: The Clios (Gold), The One Show, Print Magazine, Communication Arts, ID, AIGA, The New York Type Directors Club, HOW and Graphis.
