Bob Oller

artist / illustrator, Oller Studioos in Willaimsburg

Vector Painting

PRESENTED ON MAY 24, 2014
IN WILLIAMSBURG @ VOL 7

Bob Oller is skilled in many media. For this PechaKucha he shares a wonderful collection of artwork he has created using a vector based illustration program, yielding results that appear anything but digital. Bob explains the great control in both linework and color achieved from this method, but the real beauty comes from the skill of the artist's hand in this collection.

BY REESE WILLIAMS
@ VOL 8 ON JUN 14, 2014

20 x 20 was just the beginning framework for Reese Williams when she was looking for a PechaKucha topic. She needed another x 20, so she chose the most iconic events from 20 years ago. She then threw in a little follow up to see where the subjects of those events ended up.

CoWork Williamsburg

BY NATALIE MILLER-MOORE

Because, afterall, a coffee shop is not a productive place to work.
