James Wilkinson in the Pictofolio



Welcome to Pictofolio.com, Pictoplasma’s free online home for characters—and their creators!

Pictofolio enables international artists and creators to meet new friends, inspire each other, collaborate and show character!




Pictoplasma’s first issue of its new magazine for character design and art examines current artistic strategies that deal with the human face. From masks to digital filters, design to performance, pandemics to protests, the face remains a strategic zone where our identity and privacy are constantly being challenged and redefined – and new characters emerge.


September 2021 Pictoplasma once again welcomed all international character design pioneers, creatives and enthusiasts for a special 2-day online celebration of the very best in contemporary character design and art. 

The Online Fest 2021 featured more than 40 artist talks from all around the world, live hands-on workshops, panel discussions and screenings of animated shorts – 29+ hours broadcasted on two channels over two jam-packed days.
