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)

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!

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.

Valerie Pezeron

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!

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.

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!

Videos from PKN Mexico City Vol. 35

The PechaKucha Night series in Mexico City has been on a tear since its successful relaunch last year (following a rather long hiatus), and as you'll be able to see from the following pair of embedded videos (or watch them directly on Vimeo here and here), these events are turning out to be fantastic outings.  The poster you see here is also part of the fantastic series that has been produced since the relaunch, with each edition being done by a different designer/illustrator.
