As a child, Paul Bransom taught himself to draw at home and at the zoo. Leaving school at the age of 13, he apprenticed to Marion Fowler, creating mechanical drawings for patent applications. Bransom was fascinated with birds and frequented Schmidt's Bird Shop, which had a variety of birds as well as snakes, ferrets, and weasels. He even had his own pigeon coop with chickens and a game rooster in the backyard.
