Having learned to draw at an early age from looking at his comics (they weren’t called graphic novels back then, folks), it’s not surprising that Trevor uses their imagery as subject matter for his more painterly expressions. He enjoys exploring the memories of his childhood and the iconic representation of the characters.
Trevor’s work has appeared in “The Margaret Mitchell Story,” an NBC television movie; on the set of “Radio T.B.S.” at Habersham Community Theatre in Clarkesville; and is on permanent display at Pittypat’s Porch restaurant in downtown Atlanta. His sci-fi and cartoon-based artwork has been sold at DragonCon, America’s largest popular arts convention.
Trevor’s art is currently on display in several venues around the Southeast (including the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, Ga., Oglethorpe Power Corp. Tucker, Ga., and the Marietta Gone With the Wind Museum in Marietta, Ga.) as well as in private art collections around the country.
Frequently donating art to charitable fundraising events, Trevor’s work has helped raise funds for worthy organizations such as Earth Share of Georgia, Relay for Life, and the Atlanta Press Club, among others.
He is also the “official fine arts guy” on the Galaxy Man project at Galactic Quest Comics.
