Pablo Zafre Fernández Escalada


Watching cartoons and reading comics: that was my ideal of a great weekend when I was a child. When I was 16 I sold my first fanzines.

I studied Fine Arts in the University of Zaragoza and did my internship as illustrator in the company Gozarte SL. In January 2014, I founded PillAwake, a graphic design and advertising company. Then, I studied an Expert in Character design in U-tad.

This opened to me the doors of animation. Nowadays, I'm a freelancer dedicated to story-board, character, backgrounds and prop design, concept art and animation.

I have worked for companies such as Movistar, Reale, The Glow, Ad Hoc and Tucan Productions.
