Compound No. 1
This is the first post in a series of posts highlighting the people i once lived with in a magically dirty place called the compound.
When i first moved to Los Angeles from florida i moved into the Compound. It was (and still is)2 houses on a property with a lot of bedrooms, kitchens, living rooms and people. it was basically in other words a artist commune i guess you could say. many of the people living there had transplanted from the east coast an all gathered in this little safe haven. we cooked dinners together, went out together, had parties, and all the fun stuff you do when you are great friends with the 12 people you live with.
I was surrounded by people who were incredibly creative and inspiring. Everyone was into different forms of creativity from photographers, to painting, to motion picture to music to web design and everything in between. it was wicked fun.
so for my first compound post, i would like to introduce one of my former compound roommates Travis Millard AKA Fudge Factory Comics.
Travis was and is one of the most interesting and funny people i have ever met. Not only multi- talented but very kind and thoughtful as well. he would always bring over a fruit smoothie if he had some extra.
You could always find him in his room drawing. ALWAYS, as a matter of fact its almost impossible (still to this day) to get him to leave the house, you have to bribe him with free food or something.
so here is some of Travis's Art.
You wont find Travis on Etsy, you have to go to his website.
