10th PJ-Official ISO collab, CarnISOl begins!
 
This time, the theme is decided by long term collab participants: Carnival! The idea is to combine a circus, a theme / amusement park and a zoo. But anything related goes, such as joyrides, parties, Chinese new year events or Rio carnival. The carnival has hit the town!

The collab will feature Irenaart's award winning palette, Magnifiso-19.

First 10 tiles can be picked from anywhere (but the borders), be sure to reserve yours now!

Join the collab HERE!
