Aesop's Fables by Paul Morris

Design By:
Paul Morris
My name is Paul Morris. I am an LA-based artist, creating ink and watercolor pieces under the name of “Pollux.” I create pieces that capture the rhythms and movements of musicians and instruments: instrument and player become one, a sort of musical spirit composed of lines, colors, and shapes, with various wind, string, and percussion instruments complementing each together. I was born in 1979 in the English town of Beverley, to a Welsh father and Canarian mother. My family and I moved to the United States a year later, and I grew up in Culver City, California. I attended UCLA, studying history and Latin. I attended Brown University for grad school, studying medieval history. As a child, I constantly painted, drew, and created my own comics. My paintings have appeared in the ArtLife Gallery in El Segundo, California and the Taché Gallery in New York City. My work has also appeared in miniature block form as part of Clark Whittington’s Art*o*mat project. Not satisfied with working solely with paint and watercolor, I have also self-published more than fifty comics and graphic novels.

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.
