More About the Author

Paul Jamiol, an avid motorcyclist, has been cartooning and illustrating for the past 40 plus years. He has been recognized for his work locally, nationally and internationally. His cartoons and illustrations have been featured in various motorcycle magazines and mainstream newspapers.

He produced the Classic Motorcycle Calendar© (a collection of his pencil drawings of classic motorcycles) and has illustrated a children's book on motorcycling, Patrick Wants to Ride. He created a 30-ft mural, Women in Motorcycling, for the opening of the American Motorcyclist Association Heritage Museum in Westerville, OH. In addition, Paul's award-winning editorial cartoons have been seen and appreciated worldwide.

BIKERS are ANIMALS is a book for children who love animals and might have an interest in motorcycles. With this book, Paul's intention is to spark something in young readers that will get them excited about motorcycles. He also hopes to shake, early on, the adult refrain that "bikers are animals."

Paul's love of motorcycling started at the age of eight when he found himself behind two biker couples outside the roller coaster at Nantasket Beach in Hull, MA. His impression of these two couples in their motorcycle jackets, jeans and hats was one of complete awe. After the coaster ride, he watched them climb aboard their motorcycles and roar off into the distance. From that moment on Paul knew he would someday ride and be apart of that world.

Over half a century later, he is still in awe of anything on two wheels and the people that move in the motorcycle world. His association with all kinds of bikers over that period has enhanced his outlook on life, and his love of the ride is as strong as his first ride.

When it comes to drawing, Paul has been behind a pen, pencil or computer most of his adult life. His love of art and cartooning, combined with motorcycling have given him a chance to speak out and give something, however small, back to those he cares about. He credits Linda, his best friend and the love of his life, for giving him the peace of mind and heart to focus on his art.

Always wanting to grow and expand, Paul entered the world of editorial cartooning. He started drawing for one local newspaper and ended up drawing for several newspapers each week. He has won many awards for his unique vision of the world around us, including multiple awards from state, regional and national press associations. On the international level, his cartoons have been exhibited and published in the Netherlands, Japan, Belgium, Brazil and France.

Paul's first impression of motorcycling was that it was really "cool." With BIKERS are ANIMALS, he wants to share that feeling with youngsters everywhere.

Paul Jamiol's work presents the truth; the untainted and raw truth, with no ambiguity, ifs, or buts. His political cartoons bring humanism to artistic journalism. They express our current social and political concerns, and do so untainted by partisanship. His toons magically transcend the boundaries of the written word, and the subjects of his work are embodied with a timeless quality. Paul provides viewers with macro contexts involving core political issues facing our nation and the world. His works induce the raw emotions needed for the will to fight for `real' changes. They are genuine, sincere, in many ways raw, and unrestrained by categorical or partisan boundaries. Now, with this amazing collection of hard-hitting political cartoons, many more thousands will be exposed to the `real' truth, and hopefully they will join our efforts to bring about these `real' changes.

Format: Paperback
Paul's political cartoon collection brings laughs, chuckles, outrage and tears -- sometimes all in the same cartoon. He has a way of going directly to the heart of the matter, and nails the message every time. Paul takes no guff off of politicians, no matter where they fall on the political spectrum. His heart beats for the everyday people who are on the receiving end of the reckless policies of the of the ruling classes across the world, and his artwork clearly represents their callous disregard for the Earth, the animals, the environment, and the people who made it possible for them to be powerful.

When I look through Paul's collection of political cartoons, it reminds me of just how much destruction has been going on in the US over the course of a very short time. The heartbreak is real, the laughter and tears are real, and the anger spurs one to action -- all from Paul's images and words.

I've been posting Paul's cartoons to my blog, TheZoo, for several years now, and they are quite popular and often produce lively discussions. My favorite things are the mean and angry GOP elephants.

Seriously, if you want to enjoy a collection of political cartoons that will help you learn what's going on in the world, with great artwork, amazing color, intelligence, compassion, and humor, you'll want to read Paul Jamiol's World 2008-2010.

Format: Paperback
Paul Jamiol's political cartoons are intelligent, insightful, thought provoking, and usually right on point. I am a left-leaning political columnist and blogger, and I often find that Paul and I tend to address many of the same issues at the same time. But it takes me 500 words to say what he can convey with a single-panel 'toon. That is pure brilliance!

Those on the right should also check out this book for a fresh perspective. But be forewarned: These cartoons will make you think.
