Primarius Corporation is the winning team of children’s book authors-and-editors-for-a-day featured on the debut episode of NBC’s The Apprentice: Martha Stewart. Made up of fast thinkers, go-getters, and other creative personalities, Primarius emerged triumphant in creating this book in twenty-four hours. Will one of them become the apprentice? Stay tuned.
Paul Meisel was chosen by Primarius Corporation to create the watercolor paintings for Jack and the Beanstalk. Working through the night in conjunction with the team, he finished the job on schedule, in less than twenty-four hours.
Mr. Meisel has illustrated many other children’s books (though never so quickly), including On Beyond a Million by David Schwartz, and he is the author/illustrator of Zara’s Hats. A graduate of the MFA program at Yale University, he lives in Connecticut with his wife and their three children.
