Inspirational Artist Travis Louie

I’m really excited about the illustrations of Travis Louie this week. His dark and humorous portraits are like charming family photos of strange and beastly creatures. I love that the characters also come with a little back-story too. Here are some of my favorites:


Above is “Choking Krampus” his story is:
“After a long holiday season of punishing the misbehaved, by choking or squeezing them,.. the Choking Krampus spends the off season gardening and landscaping. They can be seen at a Home Depot or Lowe’s buying lumber or shrubs. However,… many of them are still open to be employed as chokers or stranglers,… their services can be acquired for a nominal fee that usually includes lunch.”
