Creative Mastermind Katia and Writer Lydia hard at work!

That’s right, we’ve officially moved ourselves to an office on Olive Avenue in Downtown Burbank!

After lots of back-and-forth hauling, IKEA scavenging, and working up a sweat putting desks together (phew!), we’re finally settled in! We can’t wait to make new memories here, especially more projects with our awesome collaborators! Here’s to a new chapter at Glow in the Dark.

Check out some photos of our new place below!

Comic Barcelona!

logo-37.png

So excited about this 37 Comic Barcelona Festival! Not only because I love comics and it happens in my home city, but also because for the very first time ever I will be part of it! Super thrilled to be sharing some comic knowledge with the little ones at the Comic Kids section, but also to be part of the educational program with the “not so little anymore” future pool of artists! Here at Glow in the Dark, we are all about of giving back to the community, and what a better way for me than sharing some knowledge and tips in Barcelona!

Stay tuned for more news!

Diferente!

Here  Linkedin  Article.

Here Linkedin Article.

Really excited to share the news that Katia Grifols (our mastermind at the studio) is part of this amazing rooster of Spanish Artists united for a wonderful cause: the creation of  Diferente, a co-illustrated comic written by ILEsucero and sponsored by Dibujos Por Sonrisas.  The project it’s been crafted in a disinterested way, since the benefits of this comic will be used in the campaigns that the organization Dibujos Por Sonrisas carries out to dignify the lives of refugees.

Diferente will be presented during the next Comic Barcelona 2019, and besides acquiring it right there, you will soon have it in all the bookstores.

Diferente tells the story of Jana, a young woman whom one day discovers that the world around her changes in appearance at every moment. To visualize these changes in the reality of Jana, each page of  Diferente  - sometimes even each vignette - is drawn by a different artist. A   narrative tour de force that moves between fantasy and thriller showcasing the journey of self-discovery and self-improvement.

We really hope the best for such a wonderful project!!!

Once more we were very happy to be part of a great industry panel at the Woodbury University, courtesy of their wonderful Animation Club!

Along with Annushka Almendros (APM at WB/ GITD Co-creator), Benson Shum (Disney Animator/Children Book Artist), Melissa Maryn (Toy Designer at Moose), Ryan Hansen (Story board at Dreamworks TV), Heather Gregersen (Story Revisionist at Dreamworks TV), Maureen Macomber (Studio Manager at GITD) and Katia Grifols (Mastermind at GITD) we spent our evening talking about our personal career paths and answering questions of young artists that want to make it into the industry! Was a very refreshing and fun night!

Thank you Woodbury kids for having us!

TAC and OTTAWA International Animation Film Festival! 2018

After a crazy inspiring week we can say we are back in Burbank with a LOT of awesome stories to tell from the OIAF !!! The convention was a success for us!! Not only we had a chance to represent Pirateers! It the TAC semifinals (that was an awesome experience already!), but we also took full advantage of all the incredible inspiring and informational lectures, events and a very well organized Business Fast Track. We saw a lot of international movies, made tones of talented friends and discover the heart of a very lively city that lives up to their high Canadien friendly standards.

The event had a lot of very fun and successful networking events like the Toon Boom sponsored Boat Cruise, or the BBQ-Pumpkin-Carving event in the beautiful park sponsored by Cartoon Network. Not to forget the great Nickelodeon Breakfast and the lunch and parties networking events. We really look forward to come back next year and see all the new friends we meet! Also stay tuned for mischievous outcomes from this event!

And what kind of Creative Studio we would be if we didn’t took the chance to explore and get inspired by this beautiful city?? So we did!!! And we discover tones of wonderful bookstores, secret coffees, amazing beautiful fall colors and very impressive Modern-gothic Architecture!

Ottawa is a Must See City!!
