Paul Harding is one of the industry's top traditional & digital sculptors on the hottest action figures and collectible statues available today. He is best known for his continuing sculpture work with DC Direct on the Batman Black & White statue series, Green Lantern: the Animated Series maquettes, the Classic Confrontations: Superman vs Brainiac statue, and the top-selling Batman: Arkham Asylum & Batman: Arkham City action figures, among many others.
Paul has also designed and sculpted dozens of the major characters for Toybiz Marvel Legends, Hasbro's Marvel Icons & Marvel Legends, and Diamond's Marvel Select action figures. Recently, he has seen to the relaunch of Hasbro's Marvel Legends line with his much anticipated Heroic Age: Thor figure.
Paul is also well known within the urban vinyl community for such toys as Extreme Hellboy, The Notorious B.I.G., Public Enemy, Blokhedz, Animal House, and Sprite's Miles Thirst campaign toy for Mezco.
When Paul isnt churning out Star Wars statues and toys for companies like Gentle Giant and Hasbro, and action figures of Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean for Jakks Pacific, he draws pinps for comic books such as Topcow's Witchblade and Ron Marz Shinku from Image. As if this wasnt enough he also illustrates covers for the New York Times best-selling horror novel series The Demonata by author Darren Shan.
Paul has a lovely, artistic wife and two amazing children in upstate New York. All three of them are probably, at this very moment, calling him to come upstairs for a warm meal.
