About Paul T. Taylor

Paul T. Taylor, the grandson of a trumpet-playing vaudeville comedian, is a classically trained actor of stage, film and television.  He is as comfortable in intense, macabre drama as he is in broad musical comedy. 

Paul played the role of “Pinhead” in HELLRAISER: JUDGMENT, one of the most recent installments of the long-running, cult horror film franchise, which celebrated its’ 30th Anniversary in 2017.  For this lifelong fan of all things spooky and ooky, with Halloween being his number one holiday of all time, the role was a dream come true.

He has appeared on Broadway in The Last Empress, Off-Broadway in Aunt Chooch’s Birthday, at The Kennedy Center in Shear Madness, and in dozens of Off-Off Broadway/ regional theater productions. His numerous film and television projects include SIN CITY (getting his arm broken by Mickey Roarke),  SUPER (spanking a baby Rainn Wilson), SOUL MEN (with Bernie Mac and Samuel L. Jackson), WONDERFUL WORLD (with Matthew Broderick), Prison Break, and Friday Night Lights.

What does art mean to you? Are you too hung up on 'what other people will think' to allow yourself to just be?

In this episode of the podcast Joe talks to Australian author and illustrator Shaun Tan about these very topics. Shaun originally came on the podcast to discuss his latest book 'Creature' and then the conversation wove into something far deeper and expansive than either Shaun or Joe intended.

Enjoy!

About Shaun Tan

Shaun Tan's new book 'Creature' is a collection of his artwork and essays : NPR

Shaun Tan grew up in Perth and works as an artist, writer and film-maker in Melbourne. He is best known for illustrated books that deal with social and historical subjects through dream-like imagery, widely translated throughout the world and enjoyed by readers of all ages. Shaun is the recipient of an Academy Award for the short animated film The Lost Thing, the prestigious Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award in Sweden and the Kate Greenaway Medal in the UK.

About 'Creature'

From the creator of The Arrival, a collection of essays illuminating his thoughts and advice for writers and artists, young and old.

Shaun Tan is one of the world’s most highly acclaimed narrative artists—his stories and images are loved by countless young and not-so-young readers around the world. Drawing upon 25 years as a picture book and comics creator, painter, and film-maker, Creature explores the central obsession of this visionary artist, from casual doodles to studied oil-paintings.

Beyond sketches for acclaimed works such as The Arrival, The Lost Thing, and Tales From Outer Suburbia, this volume collects together for the first time unseen and stand-alone illustrations, each resonant with unwritten tales of their own. Detailed commentary by the artist offers an entertaining insight into the endless allure of imaginary, non-human beings and what they might tell us about our so-called “normal” human selves.

Artists, writers, students, dreamers, and anyone interested in the deeper undercurrents of creativity, myth, and visual metaphor will find inspiration in these pages.
