  • Three Paradoxes


The story begins with a story inside the story: the cartoon character Paul Hornschemeier is trying to finish a story called 'Paul and the Magic Pencil.' Paul has been granted a magical implement, a pencil, and is trying to figure out what exactly it can do. He isnít coming up with much, but then we zoom out of this story to the creator, Paul, whose father is about to go on a walk to turn off the lights in his law office in the center of the small town. Abandoning the comic strip temporarily, Paul leaves with his camera, in order to fulfill a promise to his girlfriend that he would take pictures of the places that affected him as a child. Each 'chapter' of the story is drawn in a completely different style, with strikingly unique production and color themes, and yet, somehow, despite (or perhaps because of) this non-linear progression, it all comes together as one story: a story questioning change, progress, and worth within the author's life
