Travis Lampe grew up in a small town in Kansas. After earning a degree in Graphic Design, he took a job in advertising as an art director in Chicago. While making ads for breakfast cereals and well known purveyors of inexpensive furniture over a period of several years, he secretly began “developing his illustration style,” which is not the same thing as “procrastinating.” Finally, when he felt the world was ready, he began his slow explosion onto the art and illustration scene, as it were. He currently lives and works in Chicago.

In general, I'm scrambling to have some pieces ready for SDCC this year in time to publish a small zine with Mark Murphy for the event. Wish me luck.
Also, should have an artist series watch out at Vannen.com very soon, so keep an eye out for that.
I'm not a comics artist per se, but I'll be guest doodling with some real live underground comics superstars on May 1st, for FREE COMICS DAY at Quimby's in Chicago. Come out and see us. It'll be weird, guaranteed.
