About LightBox Expo

LIGHTBOX EXPO

LightBox Expo (LBX) connects fans with the artists and creators behind their favorite films, animation, games, TV shows and illustrations. It’s a place for aspiring artists to come, learn and be inspired. It’s also an amazing artwork marketplace like no other. It’s the ultimate celebration of art!

 

LBX founders Bobby Chiu and Jim Demonakos conceived the event as a way to bring together the best artists in the world under one roof. An opportunity to hang out with and meet fellow creators, share art with the public, further their skills and educate those coming up in their respective industries.

THE ADVISORY COUNCIL

LightBox Expo is a collaboration between acclaimed illustrator Bobby Chiu, the crew at Schoolism, and Emerald City Comic Con founder Jim Demonakos. To ensure that everyone attending will be respected and treated fairly, we have created the LBX Advisory Council, an ever-evolving group made up of some of the best artists and studio representatives in the business to help steer LightBox Expo in a direction that is beneficial to all involved.
