There’s no better place to showcase character design than in the hometown of Hollywood! Partnering with AIGA Los Angeles, CHARACTERIZED will present LA’s freshest character designers, animators, and street artists.

Cut&Paste invites Los Angeles’ character designers to team up to compete. If you’d like to be considered, please apply on our Online Form.

Lightly competitive yet with no shortage of creative pride, each CHARACTERIZED Tour 2013 event blends a unique perspective on characters, with a visceral exposure to designers’ techniques and instincts. In partnership with HP, CHARACTERIZED incorporates Cut&Paste’s experimental team format to bring character designers together for an onstage throwdown. Teams of 2 artists each will create throughout multiple rounds of design, using computers and analog tools to make original characters. A jury decides the winning team by consensus, who receives a HP® ZR2440w 24-inch Display. Each event promises to be a dynamic mashup of designers as an audience witnesses work broadcast on projection screens while teams make designs in real-time.

Date: TBD | Doors open at 7PM | Venue: Studio 11 4621 W. Washington Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90016 Tickets:  $7.50 in advance | $10 at the door  |  21+ to attend

We’re very fortunate to have a stellar jury for this show including Marcy Rye, Tristan Eaton and Eric Nakamura!
