AnyForty & T-world presents… TRAVIS PRICE

Travis Price is building a solid reputation for his bold linework and sense of humour.

Who is Travis Price, to those who don’t know you? I’m an Australian vector-based illustrator. I live in rural Victoria surrounded by an ever-expanding young family. I love T-shirts and character design. As a side project I run kids brand Mister Mista with my wife Renee. I grew up illustrating and skateboarding… I’m now the quintessential middle-aged skate tragic.

What do you think of the Australian illustration scene compared to the rest of the world? I’ve only just recently stopped to take stock, and there’s so much happening on so many different levels. As a design student in the mid ‘90s we were all looking towards the US, and then the UK pretty well took over, whereas now I’m looking locally a lot more for inspiration. The great thing is Australia’s a pretty small place so everyone’s accessible and really supportive of each other.

How would you describe your style? I was influenced a lot by skateboard art in the ‘80s, ‘90s and still to this day. There was also a lot of Mambo in my teens. I guess my style is a mix of skateboard, comic, retro vector with some textures thrown in there. If I had to give it a name it would be “Dirty POP Vector”.

What do you know about the UK in general? From watching “The Inbetweeners” it looks like a hard/interesting place to grow up as a teenager…. you then move to Slough and get a job working for David Brent, ha ha. At Uni we looked to the UK a lot with designers like Barnbrook, Why Not Associates, Tomato, and Vaughan Oliver. It’s funny as every large advertising agency in Australia seems to have a token English creative director. The UK produces really great conceptual thinkers. I must say I really like the UK sense of humour, I think that’s something we’ve got in common.

Have you ever been to the UK and tell us about a memorable experience you had? Embarrassingly, out of my Uni mates I’m the one who’s never been overseas (unless you count two trips to Tasmania!). I once offered an English backpacker a place to sleep for one night… he left three weeks later! The bastard owes me $3.20! Ha ha. My mum was originally from Kirkcaldy in Scotland so it’s on my list of list of things to do.
