Travis Thompson

OREGON’S TRAVIS THOMPSON

An artist in residence at Portland’s  Jackalope Custom Tattoo, Travis Thompson answered the call and is our first (of several) winners in the Poster Contest. Travis is an excellent graphic artist and came up with a variation on our original Road Trip girl, Consuela, created by L.A.’s inimitable Pepé. Travis will also get a free business card ad on the Cool Stuff page of the website. Here’s some samples of Thompson’s graphics and his winning Road Trip Poster and his bio.

“I started tattooing at seventeen in Southern California. Already having a portfolio, I was able to weasel into an apprenticeship a couple months before my eighteenth birthday. Worked in a few shops for about five years in the San Diego area. The owner of Jackalope, Chris, worked with me in San Diego for a couple years and I later found he had started a shop in Portland. Having considered relocating to the northwest, I jumped up here to work for Chris. and have been in Portland for about two years. I love and appreciate all forms an styles of tattooing and personally enjoy tattooing anything with some color. I really enjoy realism, Asian and American traditional. and anything with a challenge.”

POSTERS BY MR. G

Box machines by Mr. G.

The brilliant Mr. G from Triangle Tattoo & Museum in Ft. Bragg, California (well worth the two-and-a-half hour  trip north from San Francisco to visit G and Chinchilla and their museum) created some wonderfully historic posters worthy of any collector’s wall. More later, but here’s a couple, for now.
