Leave it to a dragon… Fighting a bit of the flu- which has seemed to attack the whole family and as luck would have it I am the last one to get it. So I sit locked away in my room contemplating on how to beat this thing. Thank goodness it only last a day […]

Distribution and Monopolies: So today I found out that Haven distributors went under a few weeks back. This is a very frustrating bit of information to swallow, because now Diamond is the only one left and they haven’t been very friendly to independents. Why is this an issue for me, well it just makes it […]

Thought I would take a moment and share the whole illustration process. This piece just came from a blank piece of paper. Most of my images do. It was shot with over 5900 stills, which were meshed together at high-speed. It’s just a quick glimpse into my madness…. feel free to share and keep creating. […]

WELL I AM OFF TO EMERALD CITY COMIC CON! It’s gonna be a fantastic weekend- even though i did a very costly boneheaded travel blunder and booked my flight for last weekend and not this weekend. It cost $1400 to rebook for my crew and I. A learning lesson for sure, one that was quite […]

I am heading home from one of the most incredible shows on the west coast. I had a blast and let me tell you the adventure was worth it. I would hope if you are ever up in seattle you need to check out the show, which happens in march. I’ll do a full write […]

It’s nice to get the drive back. I have felt that it has been a rough couple of months, yet eccc has really put me back on track. It feels nice. Refocused on Bean and almost all the books have been sent out for the kickstarter project. If you are interested i wrote a huge […]

Well phoenix comic con is done and I am home- Full show write up coming in a few moments.    

Trav’s Tidbits & Other Notes: There is something to be said about a good comicon. If the show is good, it can do re-jump start an artist in a very positive way. Phoenix Comicon was that show. It was a show I needed this year and one that has put an extra boost in my […]

I am traveling today to the ACE show in New Mexico. If you are in Albuquerque stop on by to the Albuquerque Comic Expo. As usual if you are in the area and want a FREE sketch stop on by. It’s been a busy week and there have been all sorts of projects old and […]

Can you believe we are about to break the 390 mark. I am a little blown away by that. The scary thing is we have a long ways to go and I am just at the tip of the ice-berg. Well last night we got in at about 12:30. I am a little tired. Some […]

Well – here’s today’s update. I am really sorry about the spelling issues in the last few pages. I will try and make sure it is better. The good news is that before it goes to press, it goes through a lot edit passes. I really feel bad about the last few days, and there […]

A little more to the puzzle has been answered. Working hard on finishing the book- Also getting ready for comikaze next weekend. I will post the information on monday. trav

This is a pic of my friend Troy and myself (I am standing). It has been 25 years since Troy and I have seen each other face to face. When I moved from LA we lost contact, until a year or so ago when we found each other on facebook. We’ve changed a bit from […]

Working on several things right now. I am prepping for Comikaze in LA is in two days. Plus  I am working on all the bonus material for the kickstarter project as well as some new prints. It’s been quite busy. I am also dealing with some health issues, just trying to sort things all out. […]

I remember the age when I first fell in love with fantasy art. Dragons, goblins, trolls, wizards, spiders, wood elves, dwarves and a hobbit. I was 6 years old when Rankin/Bass created their version of the Tolkien’s work the hobbit. I remember my dad letting us stay up to watch it when it aired on […]

Hello all- I hope everyone is doing well and being creative. So here are the updates on Book 3- I know a lot of people are curious on what is going on and how the whole process works and where I am at with things. We will start with the inside pages. I have 2 […]

I hope everyone is enjoying the story so far. So I have question for you first of all before we get into the nitty-gritty. Who’s your favorite character of the story so far and why… I like to ask this every now and then. Ok on to comic updates and book progress. Book 3 has […]

Ok almost done with all the kickstarter rewards, the sickness and the side projects. After this week we should be able to jump back into the world of bean full time. Thanks for the support and keep creating trav

Amazed by how some educators, teachers and people in general treat comics and comic creators. Like we are all lazy, non-talented story tellers, who produce work of nothing but pictures that has no value for kids and that our careers are basically a joke…. you are really misguided. Comics are not just about zombies and […]

1st off – thank you to everyone that participated in the kickstarter project to get book 3 printed. You were amazing and I can tell you that all the books and rewards have been sent. I could not have done this without you. I am grateful and humbled by your help. Also for everyone that […]
