Surprising Childhood Universe

BY DELPHINE VAUTE
@ VOL 9 ON DEC 02, 2014

"I am a draftswoman and work on the theme of the childhood. I create a dreamlike world populated with animals in reference to the imaging of the tales populated with anthropomorphic beings. As can be seen, I mix bodies, hybrid.
My images can seem soft and childish in the first reading but there is always a detail which can question or put ill-at-ease. It is the subject that I handle since my studies in School of Fine Arts: the question of the dead body and the obscenity, what cannot or must be shown in our western society.
I use the motive for the body of the child which is not still adolescent. In the border between the childhood and the grown-up world. A child who is not so innocent and who can be cruel. I like working around this theme for my various exhibitions.
The departure of my images are the natural history books which invade my work table. A fascination which follows me for a long time.
My workspace is blocked by books, objects which I collect in my strolls, attic sale and which are for me of the triggers of images.
We often propose me exhibitions where we give carte blanche to me I like inventing a graphic story. Tell stories by the images, so letting to the spectators the leisure invent also their own story.
My last project is a story which began in 2011 with a fanzine grouping images on the theme the childhood, animals and cruelty. This project became this year a book Yvonne, l’Enfant Château. Story of a girl, one summer, living alone with his father. A kind of Alice in Wonderland in more disturbing.
It is interesting to see how the public receives my images. My gesture is decided to shock the spectators by showing in a diverted way or by mentioning topics taboo. Certain people attracted at first by drawings are shocked and can have surprising reactions between the rejection and the advice to make me look by a specialist …
Some times ago, a person pushed me on another technique for an exhibition. The painting brings me a new approach and a method to my work. A liberation of the gesture. I always raise the same subjects. I keepin the final phase a report with the line". Delphine Vaute {in french}

Why and how did I become an illustrator?

BY GAVIN PRYKE
@ VOL 9 ON DEC 02, 2014

How did that sweet innocent young lad with soft blonde hair do such a horrific drawing of his own mother? and why? let me explain...
This caricature of Gavin Pryke's mother is where his love of drawing really started, he quickly learned the power of drawing a shy little boy could easily punish his own mother and make everyone laugh at the same time.  Nice.  He continued to do this throughout his adolescence painting his school teachers naked on the walls of my home town.

BY SOAZIG ZZ DREANO

Soazig ZZ Dréano, raised close to nature since her childhood, became « Reporter aux pinceaux » (BACKPACK PAINTING ARTIST) with the passion for drawing and her keen taste for encounters. Chinese brush and the travel book holder became her favorite tools.These tools keep a grafic trace which is the memory of these meetings.For the last 20 years, she had chosen to share her passion with mostly children.The mind opens to the surrounding world by observation, respect, and a stimulated artistic expression. This artistic approach especially induces reconnection to the five senses combined with the capacity of astonishment end the wonder at this Nature. The child can go to the heart of things and rediscover its potential.

Urban[e] Objects

BY WOODBURY SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE
@ VOL 136 ON JUN 02, 2016

A cohort of Architecture Students from Woodbury University elected Tokyo to conduce fieldwork studies by the theme  Urban[e] Objects. The research proposes new residential strategies through the translation of objects that can exist simultaneously in multiple scales: as a tea-cup or as an urban building. Their research deploys the use of isometric drawings and urban transects and inspiration derived by traditional Japanese drawing techniques to investigate questions of authenticity, translation of vernacular making methods, and interiority and apply them to contemporary challenges of shelter.

BY CAROLINE WEAVER

#3 in the SKY

This was good! And it all started with a magnificent concerto of the delicious trio: Limona Jam: Ammalia Podlaszewska + Daniele Agretti + Alex Osipenko. Taste it in a short glimpse! This was an allover dream come true evening! We had local musicians performing together for the first time, we landed on a spectacular venue on a roof top of our city, we reached the magic 10 presentations and our audience keeps on growing! Right after the sunset, we had Rubén Robledo Ibáñez showing us his reportage photos from the Gaza Stripe where he spent several weeks among befriended Palestinians. Geographically not afar, the next was Athina Stefani from Greece who involved us in her story about Ludwig Wittgenstein's house, told by the mean her own drawings authored throughout the nights before Friday: And then it happened: the Italian-Swedish team of laughter monsters (Sara Ferraioli + Carl Ydergård) stretched our cheeks to a high level of pain with their rythmic story on how Daniele, who happened to be the guitarrist at the same evening, made his career instead of playing football. A series of 20 photomontages made us laugh through the whole 400 seconds: This was not all! Sara couldn't stop just at one presentation.. An involving walk through the streets of Naples followed, filled with street art: After a smooth beer brake extended through the stunning views over Weimar: we took off again. This time Rika Tarigan from Indonesia engaged us with her designs of modern applications of the batik textile technique. Filtered through the cultural background of Indonesian fariy tales we were covered up with 20 splendid and very colorful images: Right after some colder recollections of the last winter arrived to us from Sankt Petersburg through Lithuania in the person of the delightful pianist Simona Zajancauskaite. The first musician to present images on PKN in Weimar! Stark congratulations for the courage! We were all touched by the transcontinental message instilled in the 20 slides under the title tandem, nothing is black and white anymore. The message pointing towards a possible European-Russian friendship was carried on by the presentation by Iman Hegazy (Egipt) and Tatiana Reshetnikova - the Urban Sketchers Weimar. In a series of speedy sketches we discovered some beautiful locations from Russia, Egypt and Weimar. Thank you and good luck with engaging more sketchers in your group!  The reportages from cold Russia made a perfect ground for the next story to come - this time by the PKN city-organizer himself. Gall Podlaszewski uncovered his winterly "cultural production": the Weimar Winter Bad - a series of Monday baths in the river of Ilm taking place under winter atmospheric conditions. The involvement of some other participants proved that the idea of swimming in the winter is not Bad at all! Here, the end of first season (photo by Simona Zajancauskaite who got up on a cold morning very early just to take this photo. What a brave daughter!): Right afterwards we had another swap of functions - now Tereza Spindlerova - the second city-organizer came out of her mixxer pult and took over the mic to tell us the development of her Spanish blog - a poetic journey supported by 20 almost abstract urban images: The splendid series of 10 presentations was closed, or rather opened up by the enigmatic Mr. Grüter, who did it just as we like - decided to present just at the same evening, bringing his presentation on a usb stick. Here Mr. Grüter seizes the audience with his magic pencil: Thank you all for the great fun we had that night!!

Living in Sublimity

"I like the way the markings imply an effort to impose some sort of order on infinity." Dozier Bell, an artist in Rockland, Maine, elaborates on her drawings that encompass natural and conscious elements of the world. In "Living in Sublimity" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 19 we see her artwork, in its simplicity, lessens our human understanding of these natural forces and gives us a greater sense of sublimity to our surroundings.

Penticton Vol. 2

Penticton's second Pecha Kucha night was a great success!  We had a great turn out which, for a small city, attests to the appeal of the Pecha Kucha format. The presentations covered a diverse range of subjects by some really amazing people.  Austin Hawkins spoke of his personal journey and vision as an architect in a way that made you see what his heart truly desires from his own practice.  Michele Johnson shared the conception and successful launch of the language revitalization school for the Indigenous Okanagan People.  Peter Wolf gave an emotive and insightful journey of his meditative growth over 1 year constructing a house designed by Landform Architects.  Mimi Moylan spoke of her extensive art work that includes a strong yoga practice and important community engagemnt.  Emily Elizabeth shared beautiful images that inspired the guests and explained some of the creative process involved in making her amazing beautiful jewelry pieces.   To wrap it up Vince Freeborn celebrated the first year anniversary of his email journal The High Scribe.  As always, Vince made the crowd laugh and the High Scribe experience was made complete with a sticker book of his 20 x 20 Pecha Kucha slides!  It was a brilliant idea and had our guests greedily grabbing and trading stickers to be the first to fill up their books!   Unfortunately I did not record the presentations correctly so once I reformat them I will post them for you to watch. We have already filled up the next roster for the January 2016 Pecha Kucha night!  That is how inspiring these nights are!   Check out Vince Freeborn's sticker book here.  If you like his drawings and want to see more go to www.thehighscribe.com and get subbed up!  In my opinion it is one of the best newsletters out there.

Drawing from Technology, Illustrating from Life

"Put your hand up, the people who can't draw ... I want to ask these people: Can you make an egg? Can you write your name? Before you could that, you could draw."  If you know the vociferously talented illustrator Luis Mendo, you know just how many pages he fills daily with beautiful, lively drawings. In Drawing from Technology, Illustrating from Life from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 131, he shows off 20 drawings he made entirely on the iPad Pro, all with the Apple Pencil. As encouraging as ever, Luis shows us that everyone has the potential within themselves to draw — you just have to get out there and put pencil to paper (or iPad)!

Drawing Inspiration

  "I imagine ... how the mechanical world and the natural world might merge together." In Drawing Inspiration from PechaKucha Night Oklahoma City Vol. 4, Adam Lanman shares his drawings and explains how he can imagine the natural world functioning in mechanical ways. Throughout years of studying the poetics of the built environment, Lanman has created a massive collection of drawings, methods and subjects. Lanman’s presentation illuminates a series of works exploring the space between fine art and applied art. With his artistic pursuits, Lanman hopes to renew public interest in the mundanity of surroundings that they take for granted while keeping in mind a simple but powerful thesis: if we want to change the places we live, we must first change the way we see.
