Cartoon Artist, Poul Carlsen Joins PhotoSpin's Team of Talented Illustrators

SAN PEDRO, Calif., October 8, 2013 - PhotoSpin,, a leading provider of stock photography by subscription is happy to introduce cartoon artist and illustrator, Poul Carlsen. Born in Denmark, Poul began illustrating for a nonprofit organization in 1974 at 16 years old. Throughout the years, he refined and honed his skills and began turning his passion into profits by working for Danish companies. At age 25, Poul started working for the global company, SIS-International, launching their department of graphics advertising. In addition to creating the company’s folders, price lists and brochures, he also designed their marketing brochures and graphic layouts. While working at SIS-International Poul also worked from his home, selling his drawings to companies and magazines. After turning 30 he left the department he created at SIS-International to follow his dream of starting his own company, PC-illustration & Reklame. Now well-known throughout the webmaster and clipart communities, Poul works for himself selling his art exclusively to scrapbookers, companies, advertising bureaus, and editors in Denmark. In 1997, he launched his now-famous, to expose his work not just to Denmark, but to the world. Among his many strengths are his mascot characters. Poul’s fun and imaginative cartoon drawings and adventurous style add an entertaining touch to any brochure, article, or web design.
