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)

Jonny Goldstein Fears Snakes
As we've seen before, even simple drawings can make for great slides, and so it's fun to see Jonny Goldstein tease his upcoming presentation for PechaKucha Night in Philadelphia Vol. 2 (June 13), which will cover his fear of snakes, and be presented using his original hand-drawn illustrations.

Here's more from organizer Dorota Szopowska. On the 18th of February in the Bee’s Dream it was colorful, clubby and crowdy.

The atmosphere was filled with images, sounds and lyrics of poets. At 8:20 pm the presentations’ session started. This time there were 12. The presenters showed a lot of good Polish design from different areas: photographs, graphics, illustrations, and ..... northern lights.

PechaKucha Night Vol. 1 in Tegus
Greetings from Tegucigalpa, or we locals call it, Tegus! In 3 very short weeks we will be launching the first PechaKucha Night ever in our Central American country of Honduras. We have just revealed our amazing poster designed by the very talented designer Alicia Medina, a cool lady whose experience includes illustration, branding, and art direction among other things. The poster design is based on popular local handicrafts that are a symbol of Honduras - handpainted clay roosters in bright, happy colors. During this first volume of PechaKucha Tegus we'll be sharing stories from chefs, yoginis, actors, film directors, artists, street artists and even beer brewers. It's bound to be a vibrant mix of ideas and interesting people on this warm summer night. We'll keep you all posted on how our very first night goes. We're really excited and we think it'll be a total hit. Til next time!
