Recommendations from Clients
…”extremely easy to work with”
I strongly recommend Travis Foster for anyone who is in need of premium illustration work. I have been working with him for over 25 years. He is an exceptional illustrator with a professional demeanor and a highly imaginative mind. His artistic skill-set is very versatile, ranging from watercolor, ink, pencil, colored pencil, gouache, digital, etc. I have worked with him on many projects and he always delivers final artwork that exceeds my high expectations. He is extremely easy to work with, always delivers on time and if there is a change in direction midstream, he handles it with grace and professionalism. There are only a handful of people that I admire personally and professionally and Travis is one of them.

…“Travis has created more than 175 illustrations for our publication.”
As the art director of a quarterly alumni magazine, I have had the pleasure of working with Travis the last 22 years. Travis has created more than 175 illustrations for our publication. One of his talents is the ability to capture the spirit of an assignment. He often says that he had fun with an illustration, and it clearly shows. I love that his style is accessible to a broad audience. His ability to translate humor from the written word to the visual is unmatched. We have not always given Travis the best material to work with, but he consistently finds a way to make it sparkle. He has never missed a deadline and often delivers beforehand. Travis graciously accepts feedback and effectively resolves our concerns. He interacts with us professionally—with integrity and respect. I feel that Travis is as invested in our publication as much as we are. I consider Travis to be a genuine friend and feel that he considers his clients as extended family. I highly recommend Travis for any illustration assignment.

…”brilliant and original”
We have been working with Travis for many years. We have always been able to depend on Travis to come up with brilliant and original visual solutions to any assignment he was given. Always fun to work with, dependable, up for any and all challenges. We have always been pleasantly surprised by the solutions he arrives at. His concepts are always ideas we would never have come up with (they are always much better than our ideas!). Give him creative freedom, and he delivers every time. When any illustration needs come up, he is always at the top of our list. Always a joy to work with!
-Michael Miller, Art Director, A2Z Design
…”capture ideas quickly”
We commissioned Travis for a series of promotional illustrations for the the Washington Post Jobs employer home page. He was able to capture ideas quickly and turned them into highly detailed and perfectly matched illustrations for our stories. His work is charming and fun. I look forward to the next time we have the opportunity to work with each other.
-Lin Zhuang, Senior UX Designer, Washington Post
…“timely on tight deadlines”
I design a monthly magazine, and Travis has illustrated for me month after month for almost 11 years. He is a highly talented professional, and his illustrations are spot-on to the concept and always better than I expect. He is timely on tight deadlines, responsive to our needs, and always interested in the client's point of view. I would highly recommend Travis for any illustration project, as he is versatile and his work is excellent. Please consider Travis for your next project.
