Vasco Mourão

Illustrator/Artist in Barcelona

Dumb, Lazy, and Unruly Perfectionist

PRESENTED ON JAN 27, 2016
IN TOKYO @ VOL 132

“If you told me six years ago that I could do this I would never believe you… Because really, I’m lazy as a panda, I'm not very smart, and I have difficulty focusing on one thing at one time. So i had to create a system, a strategy to sit and draw, because I really love to draw. ”

In Dumb, Lazy, and Unruly Perfectionist from PechaKucha Night Tokyo’s 132nd Volume, Speaker Vasco Mourão, an Architect turned illustrator with a tendency for obsessive drawing and detail, explains his creative process. The Barcelona-native explains that by keeping a simple, manageable, distraction free routine, he argues that one does not have to be very smart or productive to produce great works.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, February 19th, 2016.

Evolution of Process and Design

BY RON SEMEL
@ ARCHEX PECHAKUCHA SESSION ON NOV 07, 2013

Ron Semel has a simple rationale for integrating process and design: if it doesn't break, you don't know what to fix. He starts off with the evolution of motocross, wanders through architectural design, and ends up at robotics. Even the design of his presentation seems to have a process to it!
