Re-visit the finest moments of previous Pictoplasma festivals, conferences and exhibitions. We set up a little Tumblr site as a drawer for all those happy, colorful, odd and often downright bewildering memories we might otherwise forget. Don’t expect any of the pictures to make sense. It’s all just light, color, and the heavy use of totally tasteless instagram filters.

It took some time, but here it is: a brand new, shiny book compilation with the most exciting works by the international protagonists and new talents in the field of character creation. From illustration and graphic design to fine and urban arts, toys, installations and costumes, this is the unique sourcebook for all character lovers and anyone seeking anthropomorphic inspiration.
AVAILABLE ONLINE NOW > HERE
Apart from publishing books and organizing our annual festivals and conferences, we’re also busy curating exhibitions and shows, creating installations and art-happenings, or producing our own animations and theatre pieces, as well as - once in a while - being invited to offer our services to help companies get their character appeal up-to-date.
