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)

Carte di famiglia
BY VALENTINA FENOGLIO
@ VOL 9
ON JUN 05, 2014
I want to realize some picture-postcards that show “historical” family scenes.
These drows are made on tellings and descriptions of caracters and environment, so them are personalized for a single family. As if we look at an old photo album, we could have a memory sketch album.
I work as architect in Genova.
In 2011 founded the graphic and photo project RetròScatto.
From 2006 since 2013 I have joined and worked with Linkinart, group founded with other architects.
I have attended at some art exhibitions and realized illustration for publishing and music cd.
I Vestiti Nuovi di H.C.
BY MATILDE MARTINELLI
@ VOL 9
ON JUN 05, 2014
Matilde Martinelli goes into depth on how I NUOVI VESTITI DI H.C. represents the willingness to establish a link between two of the most powerful means of expression turned to the world of childhood: the fairy tale (written or simply transmitted orally ) which refers to the Prize for unpublished fairy tales H.C. Andersen, and the illustration, which is not meant as a didactic translation of a text, but as an element that enriches a narrative of new meanings.
In an effort to introduce in the festival an aspect strongly connected to the field of illustration, some of the artists in the exhibition will take part in a live drawing performance. This event will take place on the occasion of the proclamation of the fairy tales Prize winners, constituting a visual counterpoint that will come back to introduce itself during the days of the event by conducting many workshops aimed at the children illustration. The group of illustrators operates under the name of UVASPINA, a newborn identity attributed to an open collective, which is active only during the days of the Festival.

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!
