"Travis Bundy and His Gods"
Travis Bundy is set to address the multitudes at the September meeting of Cartoonists Northwest! Bundy is the writer and artist of the hard-hitting graphic novel series, “Gods of the New Empire”, a tour-de-force featuring a team of bold, original characters and the potent secret they protect, all portrayed in a vivid black and white style. The self-published series is ongoing and has seen several installments. Who are these “gods” and what is the “new empire”? Perhaps all will be revealed at the September meeting!
Bundy is also a talented illustrator with experience creating logos, posters, murals, and many other works. Here’s a bio provided by Bundy himself: “Travis Bundy was born into the fragrant cultural void known to the world as Tacoma, WA. He has been drawing and creating ever since he was old enough to hold a crayon. When he's not toiling under the boot of "the man" or drinking himself into an early grave, he continues to challenge himself in all artistic endeavors. He plans to do so until he is found expired and sprawled out over his art desk. I can only imagine that the stench will be atrocious.” For now, though, attendees at the September meet will count themselves lucky that Travis is very much alive and generously inclined to take the podium. Future stenches be damned – Travis is enjoying the sweet smell of a successfully admirable series of graphic novels, so come to the September meeting and get a whiff!
