Art to Live By, Thoughts on Teaching, and Photos from San Juan
Presentations In 2010, Lori Jakubow launched her online store, Art To Live By. In the presentation (from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 1) she shares her work, and we get a behind-the-scenes look at the techniques and materials she uses, as well as what inspires her. In her presentation (in Czech, from PKN Usti nad Labem), Eva Mráziková talks about drawings she's done, and also shares her philosophy on teaching. Posters We have a few new posters on the Tumblr blog today, covering PKN Orlando Vol. 7 (pictured above), PKN Kumamoto Vol. 4, PKN Cape Town Vol. 20, and PKN Kathmandu Vol. 3 and 6. Photos Here's a photo gallery [Flickr] for last month's PKN San Juan (in Argentina) Vol. 7, and please note that the city's Vol. 8 is already scheduled, to be held on November 3. Calendar Tonight (August 28) there are two PKNs on tap: PKN San Francisco Vol. 52 and PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 26. Tomorrow, you can look to the following three events: PKN New Haven Vol. 13, PKN Tampere Vol. 7, and PKN Providence Vol. 41.

Orange County in the Middle of China, and a Storm Trooper Prepares for His PK Debut
Presentations The first of our two presentations today, "Inside Wood and Paint: The Heart of Making," comes from PKN Taos Vol. 3, and sees Patti Tronolone sharing her paintings and furniture pieces, linking the latter to her love of nature. The second presentation is Kotama Bouabane's "Chinese's Replication of Orange County" (PKN Toronto Vol. 15) in which he reveals a Beijing suburb that was made to look like Orange County in California. Posters We've got two new posters on our Tumblr blog today, one for this Sunday's PKN Lisbon Vol. 14 (above), and one for PKN Kumamoto Vol. 3, which is set for June 1. Photos We of course have a few new galleries to share with you today, but also a fantastic teaser video for the upcoming PKN Guimaraes Vol. 2, above (produced by Damnworks).

And we're not quite sure what the significance of the following photo is (from Flickr user Kalexandersen), but with the title "On stage for a PechaKucha," it felt natural to include it. Links A couple of PK-related links to keep you reading.
