About Drake Brodahl
An LA-based animation artist and illustrator who has exhibited in galleries across the US and Internationally. His often whimsical, character-centered paintings are evocative of mid century children's books. Best known for his work as a background painter and designer on Disney TV Show Star Vs. The Forces of Evil.

About Eren Unten
An illustrator and designer from Los Angeles. She studied art at California State University Fullerton, and earned a BFA in animation. In addition to telling stories with pictures, Eren enjoys watching films, cooking, baking, reading, and spending time outdoors. 

About Paul Briggs
Worked in the animation industry for twenty years and was fortunate to be the head of story on Disney’s Frozen and Big Hero 6, both of which received an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film. However, he’s most proud of his family: his wife, Christin, and their two sons Leo and Luke. When he’s not working, Paul and his family can be found wandering the woods of California, looking for forest zombies to defeat, or engaging in epic dance battles—where they have to stop and catch their breaths.

About Pete Oswald
LA based artist, kid lit author/illustrator & Production Designer. When Pete is not working on books he is helping to uplift many of the most successful animated franchises as a character designer, concept artist and production designer. Pete has worked on The Angry Birds Movie, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatball 1 & 2; and Hotel Transylvania; and ParaNorman.

About Victoria Ying
An Author Illustrator who grew up in Southern California with the sun and surf. She started her career in the arts by falling in love with comic books, this eventually turned into a career working in Animation. She loves Japanese Curry, putting things in her shopping cart online and taking them out again and hanging out with her big buddy dog Buster. Her film credits include Tangled, Wreck it Ralph, Frozen, Paperman, Big Hero 6, and Moana.
