Jay Paulin was born and raised in Southwestern Ontario. From the time he could put crayon to paper, he wanted to be a storyteller. His first project was a dinosaur puppet show that earned rave reviews from his stuffed animals.
In his teens, Paulin was an accredited member of media for the Canadian Hockey League and an Ontario Hockey League franchise. Afterward, he elected to pursue a career in journalism.
After he and his family moved around Ontario in the mid-2000’s, Paulin finally settled in Nova Scotia where Ink’d Well Comics burst into existence. Launching Messiah (OOP) and Faces at his first show — Hal-Con. It is here where he met many new friends and fans, including artists with whom he has worked on subsequent releases.
Since then, Ink’d Well Comics has evolved into a small press, releasing print and web comics, and providing others an outlet for their own ideas. The brand is perhaps best known for their charity anthologies that shine a spotlight on independent creators. The three collections have thus far raised approximately $4,000 for both Child’s Play and Free The Children.
