Pictoplasma 2009

And so Pictoplasma was a blast...The Character Design and Animation Conference boasted a whole host of big names working within the industry today but none stuck out as much for me, as Gaston Caba of Argentina.

His presentation and concluding performance had to be one of the highlights of the conference, showcasing new and inspired work as well as a fantastic attitude and personality. You can see his performance here. Another big treat included Tados, Private Panda Club, based at Less Rain Basement Bar, where the Sheffield duo supplied a giant panda head, inviting willing participants  to adorn themselves and pose for photography taken by Tom Jackson. Mucho fun and frivolity was had by all particularly aided by the evenings speciality cocktail- the panda banger.
