Don't Hug Becky & Joe

Believe it or not, already 4 weeks have passed since the last Pictoplasma Berlin Conference. For all those showing withdrawal symptoms, those who were unable to attend the event in the flesh, or those simply unwilling to wait until the next edition, you can now feed your brain and feast your eyes on the very best of this year’s artist lectures:


VOD Home Education

Look 'n learn: Becky and Joe peak behind the scenes of their Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared saga; Mr. Bingo shares his fast-paced Silent Tourette™ wisdom; Guillaume Kashima lays out the importance of diversity in illustration; Cécile Dormeau delivers a play- and powerful manifesto against body-shaming; wunderkind of bubblegum-gifs Julian Glander takes the stage for an impromptu Karaoke session; and many, many more, served as approx 30-40 minute 720p HD mov files, for your convenient home schooling...

PictoAcademy Campus Mexico

Talking about character education: why not announce that we’re bringing the Berlin Pictoplasma Academy to Latin America?


25 OCT – 1 NOV 2016

Coming October the Pictoplasma Academy opens a second temporary campus in the heart of Mexico City and invites participants for an intense 1-week character development course. Supervised by the Academy tutors and teachers Rilla Alexander, Nathan Jurevicius, Benjamin van Oost and Philip Hunt, the program challenges you to bring your character-related projects or general style to the next level and explore it right across the media spectrum – from drawing and illustration to hands-on sculpture, installation and visual storytelling.

First deadline for applications: September 1

Of course, there's also round #4 of our big Berlin Academy masterclass coming up soon - you still have 1 month to apply!


24 SEPT – 2 OCT 2016

Picture this: During the 8 day summerschool, a selected group of 30-40 international participants have the unique chance to kick-start their careers as character designers and develop their own private projects in close collaboration with industry leading artists, filmmakers and producers, followed by a half year of ongoing mentorship, leading to an exclusive exhibition as central part of the following Pictoplasma Festival.

Deadline for applications: July 15

We’ll be sharing more news soon (including the long overdue comeback of the Pictoplasma NYC Conference this November), but for now take a look at what previous alumni have to say about the Academy, familiarise yourself with the curriculum and prepare for the upcoming advanced character studies!

hasta luego,
