The Art of Travis A. Louie

Monty's Day of the Dead by Travis Louie

Still mourning the sudden death of the great ArtDorks forum and its fascinating crew of inspiring and talented members, I'm overjoyed to let you know that one of its most outstanding contributors, Travis A. Louie, finally has his own domain to worthily represent his creepy anachronistic art.

I guess I'll never be quite sure whether it's the precision of his style or the fact that - similar to Victorian studio portrait photographs - most of his otherworldly creatures confront the viewer so inescapably directly that gives the alternate realities Travis creates a totally justified existence somewhere in the past or future of transhumanist history.

At any rate.. I, for one, wouldn't be surprised whatsoever to bump into one of his oddlings during my Sunday walk along Lake Lucerne.
