Welcome, Confederates!

We’re happy to announce that Mark Tesch and Ryan Anin have joined Happy Garaje as studio partners!

The razor-sharp-smart Mr. Tesch is perhaps best known for his contributions to the Cebu music scene, from the years of Lighter Records fame (where he helped release artists Urbandub, Nuncyspungen, Faspitch, PCK and The Ambassadors). Always up for trying new things, his recent interests have been in technology, designing games and apps. We’re excited that he’s come onboard and will spearhead our efforts into creating some awesome things for tech and mobile.

Ryan Anin has always been one of our favorite local artists. His head is a treasure chest of odd characters that come alive through his work in comics and animation. He co-founded and ran PopCorn Comics in the early 2000s. A top-notch illustrator and graphic designer, he’ll provide new creative perspective for our future design and studio-initiated projects.

Best of all, they’ve been long-time collaborators and great friends of ours. We look forward to creating many new wonderful things with them.
