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)

Venom Palette Illustrates for PKN Gothenburg
Kudos to PechaKucha Night Gothenburg for inspiring one of its past presenters, illustrator Daniel Johansson (aka Venom Palette), into producing the PKN GBG image seen above. Daniel has this to say on the piece: The image is a paraphrase on the last image of my own PechaKucha presentation which portrayed a tiger woman -- the only illustration my dad likes. This illustration is of a zebra woman (actually Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs who also modeled for the tiger woman illustration). The zebra pattern symbolize the beautiful multiplicity and uniqueness of PechaKucha and all the different presenters. The microphone represent the verbal part of presenting, and the camera (head) for the visual part. And everybody wears Converse shoes in Gothenburg!
Venom Palette in Tokyo
Hopefully you'll remember the terrific image we featured a few months ago that Swedish illustrator Daniel Johansson -- otherwise known as Venom Palette -- created for PechaKucha Night in Gothenburg. Daniel has now made the trek to our homebase of Tokyo, where he is currently exhibiting new works at the Design Festa Gallery in Harajuku (until May 14).
Poster for PKN Montevideo Vol. 2
Montevideo is getting ready for its second PechaKucha Night (November 25), and here's a look at the terrific poster organizers have put together. The design is by Fran, a young Uruguayan illustrator, and as organizer Silvana Bergson Rozenbaum tells us, he "invented Mr. PechaKucha, [who] is now the image of our event and part of our team!"
Today we look at another presentation from the recent PechaKucha Night in London Vol. 2, this time by illustrator (and more) Valerie Pezeron. Valerie Pezeron is a London-based illustrator, motion-graphics designer, storyboard artist and Art Editor of Amelia's magazine. This is a stunning presentation of her work, sweet and bland -- it is not. A reaction to politics, social issues, dreams, fantasies and sex -- it is!
Tokyo-based illustrator and designer Edward Harrison was on hand at last week's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 73 to walk us through Idle Idol, a new book that captures the amazing world of the statuesque mascots found in front of many Japanese stores. The next step for Edward is to cover them worldwide, so if you'd like to help out, get in touch with Edward through either his own site or the book's site.
Poster for PKN Huddersfield Vol. 4
As we've stated before, not all cities were able to reschedule their events to the 16th -- to take part in the Global PechaKucha Day - Inspire Japan event -- but it doesn't mean that those other PKNs are not part of our global efforts. Even though PechaKucha Night in Huddersfield Vol. 4 will be held a couple of days before, on April 14, organizers will still be accepting donations, that will all count towards our PK community total, and go to Architecture for Humanity's reconstruction efforts in Japan. The event will be held at Cafe Ollo -- see the full list of presenters with links on the official event page -- and the lovely poster was designed by Huddersfield illustrator Peter O'Toole.
PKN Winnipeg Vol. 7
PechaKucha Night in Winnipeg Vol. 7 was held last month, and here we have a few photos from the event to share -- you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the event page. Pictured above, Bill McDonald, CEO of the Winnipeg Humane Society. Josh Dudych (designer) Stephanie Besselt-O'Leary (designer/illustrator) All of the presenters from PKN Winnipeg Vol. 7
Poster for Champaign-Urbana Vol. 9
Here's a look at a second poster that was produced for last month's PechaKucha Night in Champaign-Urbana Vol. 9, with details from organizer Christina Wondra:We received this FAN-tastic PechaKucha Night C-U Vol. 9 illustrated poster by local illustrator/designer David Michael Moore. He helps speakers and professionals deliver unforgettable messages by illustrating a visual narrative that elevates their words into art.
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!
