"I originally met Travis during my senior year at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film in the spring semester of 2010 while he was an adjunct professor teaching the Illustration 3 class. I was fortunate enough to intern in his studio from May 2010 through December 2010. Travis has the heart of a teacher, and his depth of knowledge coupled with his years of experience in this industry makes him an asset to any student looking to bridge the gap from school to a professional career in commercial art. Seeing the day to day operations of a successful illustrator running a small business gave me the confidence to pursue a freelance illustration career for myself. Any student willing to come in with an open mind and an eagerness to work on their craft would be well served to take this opportunity. I cannot recommend it highly enough." -Michael Korfhage (see Michael's work)
