Why are the signatures different?

There are two reasons:

  1. I don’t sign my name consistently; sometimes it is “PAUL”, for a while “COYLE”, and sometimes “PAUL C”
  2. I flirted with the idea of making a persona on Instagram named “YABO” through which I would share my art and possibly sell it; this never took off, mainly because I find social media nauseating.
