The Center of Light Radio Show with host Keith Anthony Blanchard

Show Topic: "Art and Spirituality"

Born December 10th, 1969, in Sacramento, California, Chad Glass showed early signs of a talent for drawing. Born into a life of television, Chad’s art director father, Chris Glass, took him along on the weekends to the art department where learning and exploration were encouraged. From ages 3, 4, 5, 6 and beyond, while moving from California, to Massachusetts, to Georgia, then back to California, a life in broadcasting influenced and shaped the way Chad approached his art, cultivating a sense of visual storytelling. 

“Everything I’ve learned about storytelling I’ve learned from television storyboarding. Moreover, drawing has been the bridge across every gap in my life,” says Chad. “Since there are only 7 basic stories that anyone could ever tell, it doesn’t matter where one learns to tell these stories as the structures are all the same whether you watch them on t.v. or read them in a book.” Continuing to draw well into adulthood, it only made sense he would need to keep doing it to survive: “I am not really capable of doing anything else in life except for being an artist. This is both an amazing gift and a worldly burden. Even though I write and play music, too, these are within the arts.” 

In 1999 he moved to Los Angeles from Georgia and established a career as a storyboard artist in Hollywood. He continues to draw but today focuses more on returning to painting and serving beauty instead of “industry.” He lives in Sylmar with his wife and cat.
