Bio

Artist Bio - IBTrav - Travis Falligant, Character IllustratorI’ve always liked to escape real life. At an early age, my imagination would sometimes get the best of me. The way I wrangled all the ideas and energy swirling around in my head was to put crayon to paper. I wasn’t a little monster or anything, far from it actually. Being artistic has just always been my safe haven.

As I grew up, I would enter little art contests here and there. My mom enrolled me in gifted art after-school classes. I continued to create, being inspired by pop culture, film, music, television. I always dreamed of living in a John Hughes film. If only my life could be filled with an awesome soundtrack and music montages! In high school, I was elected Most Artistic by my graduating class, helped out the yearbook staff by illustrating sections of the yearbook, got a couple scholarships and was accepted to the Savannah College Of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia.

In college, I soaked up the social experience more than anything. I also finally realized the agony and ecstasy of not being the only creative person in my close proximity. Agony because I wasn’t the hot stuff anymore and ecstasy because I was around similarly attuned people.

Upon graduating college with a BFA in Illustration, I began to slowly move into the freelance world and later into in-house graphic artist positions.

Recently, I’ve gained attention with the “Lost Mysteries” series, putting modern day movie monsters into Scooby-Doo scenes. It’s really gained me a lot of exposure. I hope you’ll follow me to see where I go from here!

Thanks for reading!
