Win A Ticket To Attend Pictoplasma Conference in New York City

Pictoplasma has finalized the speaker list for its fifth New York City conference, which will take place on on November 4, 2016.

The one-day event brings together illustrators, visual artists, designers, and, animators, all of whom create character-driven work. On the animation side, the speakers are Ben Bocquelet, creator of the Cartoon Network series Gumball, Pittsburgh-based indie animator Julian Glander, and independent filmmaker Kirsten Lepore, who recently directed the stop motion episode of Adventure Time, “Bad Jubies.” A screening of contemporary animated shorts will also take place during the conference.

Other speakers at the November event are:

  • Jean Jullien, who created the instant-classic “Peace for Paris” symbol after last November’s terror attacks in Paris
  • Japanese artist Motomichi Nakamura
  • Slovakian illustrator Martina Paukova
  • Spanish artist Jaime Alvarez, creator of the Mr. Kat character brand
