Travis Charest was born in Leduc, a small town in Canada. It is at his grandmother's house where he found his first comic book, which inspired him to start drawing. His first work was published at DC Comics in the 'Flash Annual'. Based on this work, Jim Lee asked him to move to California to draw for the Wildstorm Studios. He worked on series like 'Gen 13', before he began producing 'Wildstorm' and 'WildC.A.T.S.'.
At the moment, Travis Charest makes 'Les Métabarons' for Les Humanoïdes Associés with writer Alejandro Jodorowsky.
