Creating Enduring Art

The Importance of History, Life Lessons from Sao Paulo, and PKN Champaign-Urbana Illustrated

Entrepreneur and graphic designer Gustavo Garcia uses his presentation (in Portuguese, from PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 10) to teach us 10 important life lessons, regarding work, jobs, life, career, and more.

A History of British Accents, Book Design in Xalapa, and a New Milestone
Presentations It's with great joy that we can say that, with the inclusion today of a presentation from the city of Xalapa, we now have presentations representing 100 different cities on the PechaKucha website -- and we're only a few presentations away from reaching a global count of 500 online presentations. It's always been our goal to share the widest variety of presentations as possible -- and in as many languages and regions as possible -- and it feels like it's something we're achieving day by day. And it won't stop until we manage to get presentations online from every single PechaKucha Night city! Mark Staplehurst is a web designer and developer from England, and in his presentation (from PKN Toronto Vol. 16) he talks about the history of British accents. You'll soon realize how Englishmen are all "branded by the tongue." What can you tell about Mark from his accent? In this presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Xalapa Vol. 8), Álvaro Itzamá takes us on a tour of various book projects he's worked on, each quite different from the other. Posters There's just one addition to the Tumblr blog today, and it takes the form of the poster for the upcoming PKN Bozeman Vol. 4 (on September 12), pictured above -- you'll find more details, including the full list of presenters, on the official event page. Calendar Here are the two events you can catch tonight (September 5): PKN Roanoke Vol. 3 and PKN Trnava Vol. 5. Tomorrow, it's another big Thursday with the following: PKN Barnsley Vol. 5, PKN Dunedin Vol. 15, PKN Svendborg Vol. 2, PKN Singapore Vol. 5, PKN Santiago Vol. 3, and PKN Budapest Vol. 28.

We heard from John Schauer, presenting his recent joint endeavor, a project called, 49 Faces of Alaskan Adventure. You can find out more about it here: http://49faces.com/. We learned the rules of creating a spectacular Halloween costume and why it has to be homemade from Corey DiRutigliano. We took a virtual architecture tour of Japan with Janet Matheson and her wonderful photos from her recent trip. Kristen Timm gave us an entertaining and enlightening view into the history of Tourism. Randall Rozier gave us a glimpse into our caffiene nation and how coffee has influenced us in more ways than you might realize. Brittany Jackson presented on how important the design of public restrooms is to our public spaces and how the design of them is so varied across the globe. Finally, I gave a brief history of the banjo, it's not just a bluegrass instrument. We had a good size crowd that is now more enlightened and inspired and ready for our next PechaKucha Night!
