From large companies like KEEN footwear and Chris King Precision Components to local bands such as Hippie Death Cult, Travis has become an extremely versatile hand lettering artist and muralist. His art work can be found in every corner of Portland. From your favorite bars and restaurants like Wedgehead Pinball Lounge and Holy Ghost Bar to large scale murals in his own neighborhood of Foster-Powell in Southeast he intends to cover as much of the city in paint and ink as he possibly can.
