Eric Robles created the Nick show “Fanboy and Chum Chum.” He’s currently in the process of creating his second show for Nickelodeon, “Glitch Techs,” which won’t come out until sometime in 2018. Eric is a self-taught artist, and the story of how he got from the path to becoming a police officer to his first job in animation is an incredibly inspiring one. I’m excited for you to hear it.
Thanks so much to Eric Robles for that great conversation, thanks to Audrey Gray at nick for setting it up, and to the great Brad Breeck for the introduction. You can still find some "Fanboy and Chum Chum" video clips and games at www.nick.com, and next year you’ll be able to see "Glitch Techs" on Nickelodeon.
