Travis Millard on A.D.D Podcast

Check out Travis Millard interview on A.D.D Podcast, which you can listen to online at Travis x A.D.D Podcast.  Here’s a little excerpt from the page:

Travis Millard and I have a shared past even tho we never attended school together. We both attended Olathe South, and KU. We’ve both also shared similar art teachers & professors. So… there’s that. I have been a few steps behind on a similar journey for over 10 yrs now. I’ve loved Travis’s work since the first time I laid my eyes on it. He’s also one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met. Alright…let’s get to the nitty gritty! 

Also, you gotta check out Travis and Mel on instagram - @melkadel @theotherfudge.  Check out these cute and awesome portraits.
