He’s also curating the upcoming “Monster” exhibition of paintings, sculptures and drawings by artists from film production, animation, illustration, at Copra Nason.

UPDATE: Web preview

Travis says “It seemed like a no-brainer. When I thought about curating a show featuring such fine talents I wanted to have a theme that was open-ended but cohesive enough for all these imaginative artists to flex their creative muscles. There are production designers who have created creatures for films and animation as well as illustrators who have created covers for sci-fi, horror, and fantasy paperbacks and movie posters. I put them together with some of the regular artists from this gallery scene to see how they would tackle the theme and am very excited to what these talented individuals have made without the constraints of art direction hanging over them while they produce their work. Often, we see their names in the end credits of films not knowing what they actually did on the show or we see their work as illustrations for bookcovers and magazine articles but take their art for granted.
