Paul Cannell: Youth

Not much is known about Paul's youth. What we do know - is that when he was around 14/15 he was completely captured by the introduction of Punk Rock. It influenced his art and character strongly - and likely waves of it's effect shaped his character into adulthood. He mentions that he had 'always drawn', so he left school and went into commercial printing (cocktail serviettes, party invitations and the like). He struggled with conventional work - doing a number of odd jobs that never lasted for long, eventually deciding to try to paint - which lead him to how we know him today.
