Pictoplasma is here!!!!! The most amazing festival of contemporary character design and art with screenings, lectures and presentations.
The Pictoplasma Berlin Festival brings together an international scene of artists, directors, designers and agencies, offering a unique forum for all those working with – or simply loving – the visualization and application of contemporary character design. Whether illustration, animation, graphic design, urban vinyl, street or fine art – the emphasis is not on the limits of style or format, but on the shared dedication to explore character-driven aesthetics. The lively exchange between the various disciplines highlights the importance of characters in contemporary visual culture.
The Southern California artist Tim Biskup is featured in this month Juxtapoz Magazine. In the interview he talks about his career and recent artwork which he describes as being more complex and conceptual. The magazine features beautiful illustrations and an entertaining dialogue with the amazing artist.
The Scarygirl adventure continues with Nathan Jurevicius’ latest mini series. From soothsayers and scavengers to skeletons and squid women, each of the 11 blind boxed figures, including the 2 chases, are 3-inches tall and include accessories and an insert that tells their twisted tale.
Nathan describes “Scarygirl” as a surreal, psychedelic composition of heartfelt stories and reinterpreted folklore based around a cute yet slightly odd little girl and her giant octopus guardian.
