LightBox Expo 2019 introduced the world to the annual festival, aiming aims to connect fans with the artists and creators behind their favorite films, animation, games, TV shows and illustrations. LightBox Expo is a place for an aspiring artist to come and learn and be inspired, and it’s also an amazing artwork marketplace like no other. It’s the ultimate celebration of art!



LightBox Expo was conceived as a way to bring together the best artists in animation, illustration, live action and gaming industries under one roof. An opportunity to hang out with and meet fellow creators, share art with the public, further skills and educate those coming up in their respective industries.



LightBox Expo 2019 took place at the Pasadena Convention Center, located in beautiful downtown Pasadena, California!
