Travis Hanson - Trav's Big Imagination

2016.11.19 NJ Comic Expo, Edison, NJ

I appreciate all styles of art, but every so often, one just grabs at me. Travis Hanson has that style. His self-published works include The Bean and Little Lost Tales.. Trav's website has a comic showing him speaking with his daughter about how his imagination took him on many adventures through his summer afternoons, fighting robots, traveling in hot air balloons, spaceships, riding on the back of dinosaurs, exploring jungles like Indiana Jones, etc...  No different from everyone who attends a comic expo...

I was especially taken by his imagery of a hot air balloon flying alongside flying whales, this beautiful vision of flight is what made me want to visit his booth at the expo...

Although the sketch he drew is small in size, it is expansive in imagination... Dream Big!


Travis provided the artwork for the Expo program and T-shirt.  He made sure to include the iconic Edison Tower in the background and the NJ Devil, in his hockey uniform as part of the artwork to add a true touch of Jersey attitude to his art...
