It’s the official kick-off event of Pictoplasma 2011 and is taking place on Wednesday, the 6th, starting from noon, with many of the locations celebrating their welcome receptions in the early evening.
Pictoplasma is an organisation dedicated to the art of character design, and are notable for bringing it into the mainstream. Since 1999, they have encouraged the international character design scene by publishing collections of characters, organising character design conferences and by maintaining the Pictoplasma Archives, an extensive inventory, collection and showcase of contemporary character design.

All participating locations as well as further info about the character walk can be found on the official map. I’m not sure yet whether I can make it, but it’s definitely worth to join the character enthusiasts…
