A unique chance to make work with Paloma Dawkins, cartoonist and virtual reality and video game artist based in Montréal. Her recent work includes Gardenarium (GDC Mild Rumpus), Alea (Comics x Games), and Palmystery (A MAZE Johannesburg), all of which can be played here.

For this 3-hour session, Paloma gets back to her cartooning roots. She and 6 lucky participants will each create an animated portrait from their dreams. Using TAIS’ brand new Wacom 22HD Cintiqs, the versatile animation software TV Paint, and open-source software Pencil 2D, the final results will be combined into one trippy morphing exquisite corpse.
