Paul Fell came from Massachusetts to attend college and play football in the Cornhusker state. He married a farm girl, became a Nebraskan, and never really went home again. Now he think all those Easterners are crazy... and they talk funny, too.
Fell began as a high school art teacher and coach, spent several years as an art professor at Peru (NE) State College, and was editorial cartoonist for the Lincoln (NE) Journal from 1984-92. Since then he has operated his own freelance cartoon business in Lincoln where he creates humorous illustrations for a wide variety of clients.
Fell's editorial cartoons have won a number of awards and apppear regularly in several national publications. He is in demand as a speaker and draws caricatures at conventions, trade shows and receptions. He contributes three editorial cartoons a week to the opinion page of the Lincoln Journal Star and creates a weekly cartoon for the Nebraska Press Assn. which is distributed statewide. In addition, his work appears in every issue of Huskers Illustrated magazine.
Paul Fell has also produced a number of cartoon books over the years ranging from collections about Nebraska's weather, communities, and people, to a collection of his editorial cartoons titled "Bipartison Efforts and Other Mutations".
Fell has also served for several years as a lecturer in Art at the University of Nebraska at Kearney and at Peru State College and Southeast Community College in Lincoln.
Paul Fell continues to be amazed that he now gets paid for doing the very things that got him into so much trouble during his school days. He lives in Lincoln, NE, where his long-suffering wife, Arlene, continues her fruitless efforts to domesticate him.
