June Edition of Popular Science Magazine

This month's contribution to Popular Science Magazine. Much like the current generation that is intuitive about computers and cellphones- the next generation will be intuitive about robots. They will know how to use them, communicate with them, and interestingly be attached emotionally to them.

The piece was written by the very talented Corinne Iozzio whom I've had the pleasure of illustrating for a couple times in Popsci Magazine. Click here to read this article and to read more of Corinne's wonderful work.

Website Updated and News

I try. I really, really try to keep my website updated. So if you haven't checked it out in a while please do so- there's lots of new work in the galleries. I started out my career largely as an editorial cartoonist. As the work gravitated towards illustrations- more and more time was committed to developing as an illustrator.

Lately I've come to missing the cartooning quite a bit. So I've decided I'm going to create a blog or a few blogs dedicated to gag cartoons and perhaps a few strips with some characters I've created. I'll announce the new blogs on this page when I get it(possibly them) up and running. As always- thanks!

Cheers, Paul

May 2013 Popular Science Magazine Illustration

The new Popular Science magazine has hit the newsstands. Here's the illo I did about RFID tags that tell you what is in your fridge from your mobile device.

April Popular Science

Popular Science Magazine Illustration about Medical Apps entitled  "An App A Day: How personal trackers will change health care.". The article was written by Rebecca Boyle

March Popular Science Magazine Illustrations

This months Popular Science Magazine illo about wearable computers like Google's Glass pictured in this illo. The column is by Rebecca Boyle about how wearable computers that can help folks meets goals such as better health.

A feature story in this months Popular Science is about people who obtain serious brain injuries that release the "Genius Within". I was teamed up with very talented 3D modelling artist Graham Murdoch for this graphic. I love the detail Graham added to the Russian dolls. The magazine piece includes a regular guy with a head injury- Beethoven, Einstein, Edison and Picasso. A very different and fun assignment for me.

A Week of Tragedy

Two very tragic events reflected in two very different eyes.

High Country News Cover

A cover I did recently for High Country News based in Colorado. The image is inspired by socialist propaganda posters of the old Soviet Union. Thanks to Art Director Cindy Wehling -it`s always a pleasure

Occasionally while doing an illustration I'll have a little trouble getting the position of one the characters exactly how I want it to be. That's when I break out the digital camera and transform into my alter-ego- Paul Lachine supermodel extraordinaire.

It looks a little silly but it certainly does the job. I can even add some hair on top of my head!

"Violence Against Women" Art Featured at Event

Here are a few pictures that were taken by Kathy Muach who runs the Three Rivers Crisis Center in Wahpeton, North Dakota and sent to by Becky DeVries.

My art on the subject of "Violence Against Women" was featured throughout the event.

It's always a great honor and pleasure to help out at these type of events. People like Kathy and Becky are very special people who dedicate their lives to helping others. It was great to be involved in this event.
