Paolo Rivera is an Eisner Award-winning American comic book artist. He is known for illustrating the Mythos series of one-shots, several issues of Spider-Man and his collaborations with writer Mark Waid and inker Joe Rivera on Daredevil. Although he began his career painting in oil, he has since moved on to penciling, inking, and coloring (with some occasional sculpting).[citation needed]

Early life[edit]

Rivera was born and raised in Daytona Beach, Florida. He was the valedictorian of Mainland High School class of 1999. He graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 2003, where he studied under David Mazzucchelli.[citation needed]

Career[edit]

Rivera entered the comics industry thanks to writer Jim Krueger, whom he had previously met at MegaCon in Orlando, Florida while still in high school.[citation needed]
