Pictoplasma’s new online home for characters—and their creators!
When Pictoplasma went online in 1999 via 56k modem, it was our goal to serve as the world’s first platform for a new generation of character-driven visuals. Only a few months later our database imploded and all was lost.
Now, after more than 17 years of closely accompanying a global scene of artists in the real world, through our festivals, conferences, exhibitions, publications and the Academy, we feel the time has come to start over, do it right, and create a soulful and supportive online community, where artists can push characters to new visual heights.
