Indonesian Comics

BY ANTO MOTULZ
@ VOL 9 ON JUL 07, 2011

Anto Motulz is an Indonesian comic book artist, and in this presentation he tells us about the medium he had decided to express himself in. As a comic artist, he does not limit himself by drawing with one tool, and instead he will move from ballpoint to pencil to color pencil to brush, even using sticky notes as a medium. He also shares stories how he himself as an artist is adapting to technology development, from using Wacom and the iPad in creating his works. (in Indonesian)

Fred Black

BY THOMAS SCHIELKE
@ VOL 21 ON APR 14, 2012

His fictive timeline looks back from the year 2022 and reveals the side effects of extensive LED lighting expansion. In his effort to redefine the beauty of the night, Fred creates a counterpoint as he initiates the Nocturnale Event in 2022, where he gives shadow a new perspective.

Nattbarn

BY HANNAH GUSTAVSSON
@ VOL 40 ON JUN 13, 2013

Hannah Gustavsson is a young illustrator and graphic novelist who presents her degree project from the Konstfack school of arts and design. In her soft-spoken, emotionally loaded presentation she speaks of her central character; one who faces teenage problems of sexuality, fitting in, school, identity, family life and social classes. Undisputed in her talent as an artist, what surprised everyone was the intellect of the narrative of Nattbarn (Night Child), a story to which we can all relate to some degree. (in Swedish)

BY DAVID ROBERT
@ VOL 110 ON JAN 22, 2014

Illustrator David Robert came to Japan to buy some special pens for his illustration work, and ended up staying permanently. The story that got him there, on the other hand, is a lot more complex than that.

The Art of Photographing Water, Indonesian Comics, and Post-Earthquake Christchurch

Presentations Chris Tennant is a physicist by day, but behind the lens he becomes the champion of photographing water. This presentation (from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 1) takes us on an exploration of the soul of water's essence. The images are amazing enough, but Chris' narrative opens us to a deeper understanding of why we are always drawn to images of water. Anto Motulz is an Indonesian comic book artist, and in this presentation (in Indonesian, from PKN Jakarta Vol. 9) he tells us about the medium he had decided to express himself in. As a comic artist, he does not limit himself by drawing with one tool, and instead he will move from ballpoint to pencil to color pencil to brush, even using sticky notes as a medium. He also shares stories how he himself as an artist is adapting to technology development, from using Wacom and the iPad in creating his works. Posters We have a few additions to the Tumblr blog today, including posters for PKN Castellon Vol. 1, PKN Pisa Vol. 2, and PKN Christchurch Vol. 14 (pictured above). Here's more from PKN Christchurch organizer Jessica Halliday, on the poster, the upcoming event, and the current state of post-earthquake Christchurch.The poster was designed by noted New Zealand artist Julia Morison. We're in raptures over it -- it's the first illustrative design we've had for a PKN poster, hey're usually by designers who are obsessed with typography, not that there's anything wrong with that but it's a great privilege to have Julia make something so distinctive for us that so beautifully expresses PechaKucha. This time we're going to hold PechaKucha Night in The Court Theatre's temporary shed -- a post-earthquake example of temporary adaptive reuse of an industrial building for cultural purposes. It's in the urban-fringe village of Addington, so we're stepping outside the central city for the first time. Much of our central city is still cordoned off -- as it has been since the 22 February earthquake -- and it is now estimated that at least 80% of our central city buildings will be demolished. In addition, over 7000 domestic properties have been 'red-zoned,' meaning they won't be rebuilt on their existing sites and thousands of people have to find new places to live. This is a devastating loss and life here is still very difficult for many of the city's citizens. We hope PKNCHCH14 will be something of a bright spark in the cold, winter darkness. We've got an excellent line up -- from the eight listed on the poster we've now risen to 11 superb speakers from the fields of architecture, science, visual art and design. We may even get a special surprise twelfth speaker...Video Today, instead of photos, we share a video that offers a taste of the recent PKN Bilbao Vol. 13.  Calendar Tonight (July 3) you can catch PKN Cape Town Vol. 19 -- we're told there will be an 11-year-old presenter in the lineup -- and tomorrow you can look to the following two events: PKN Amsterdam Vol. 22 and PKN Utsunomiya Vol. 1.

The Fear of Sharks, Learning from Villains, and the Making of a PKN in Cagliari

Presentations We all have irrational fears, and for quite a few, sharks top the list of that which is most feared. In this presentation (from PKN Louisville Vol. 3), Paul Sirek goes beyond the Jaws of Spielberg, and reveals the true nature of these creatures. And what can we learn from the most villainous villains of them all? In his presentation (in Portuguese, from PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 10), Nicolas Vargas takes a stab at listing 10 super villains, and explains the important lessons he has learned from their mistakes. Posters We end the week with a few new posters on the Tumblr blog, including the one pictured above, for a special edition PKN happening in Chicago on July 19, as well as posters for PKN Las Palmas Vol. 7, and for PKN Erlangen Vol. 3 and 5. Here's more on that special event in Chicago: WHEN LESS IS MORE... In association with the Society of Architectural Historians, PechaKucha Night Chicago heads for a summer road trip to the Louis Sullivan designed Charnley House in Chicago's Gold Coast. An intimate venue to be sure (so we wont get three hundred in there). Get tickets early and enjoy this amazing Chicago treasure - for one night only - invaded by PechaKucha Night. All ages show. Information at Facebook. The officially fantastic poster of this Volume is designed by Akemi Hong for the SAH. And watch out for another downtown extra Volume in mid August. Also in a very cool venue... Video It's been a week of videos, and so why not end it with another one, this time covering the recent PKN Cagliari Vol. 3, both the event itself and behind-the-scenes. Calendar Here's what you can expect in terms of PK action over the weekend. First, tonight (July 6), you'll find the following three events: PKN Nishinomiya Vol. 13, PKN Pisa Vol. 2, and PKN Castellon de la Plana Vol. 1. On Saturday, there's PKN Shenzhen Vol. 11, and PKN Marseille-Provence Vol. 19, which marks that city's 5th anniversary. On Sunday, you can catch PKN Christchurch Vol. 14 -- see this post for more on that event, and an update on post-earthquake Christchurch.

Criticizing Corporate Portraits, X-Ray as Social Medium and Art, and Some More Jumping from Tokyo

Presentations Tash Jefferies likes to dress in a colorful way and have big hair, in her work environment. In this funny presentation (from PKN Toronto Vol. 14), she takes a look at typical corporate profile photos, and tries to understand what the people behind them are thinking. In her presentation (from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 2), Lita Tirak tracks down the evolution of x-rays as a social medium and an art form. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster that was produced for this past Sunday's PKN Lisbon Vol. 15, a very special edition that celebrated the city's International Festival for Comics & Illustration. The poster illustration is by Joana Afonso. A while back we shared the flyer that we made for tonight's PKN Tokyo Vol. 96 -- our big Tokyo Designers Week edition -- and here's a "sister" image that was also produced, which is part of tissue cases that we will be handing out at the event. As with the original flyer, the photo is by Michael Holmes and design by Luis Mendo. Yes, we do love jumping, and we'll soon share the new flyer we've produced for our regular Tokyo events, which continues the trend. Calendar As we mentioned yesterday, it's our big Tokyo Designers Week edition of PKN tonight (October 31) -- aka PKN Tokyo Vol. 96 -- and if you're in town, you won't want to miss it. Wednesday also includes the following three events: PKN Derby Vol. 7, PKN Mikkeli Vol. 1, and PKN Montevideo Vol. 8, and tomorrow we have PKN Bucharest Vol. 10.
