His talk will touch on the art of tapping, a rare technique left in the world. Instead of relying on an electric machine and a steel needle, Nunes makes his own tools and even his own ink when tattooing in this very rare ancient way.

Using the example of Chinese ink paintings recently discussed in such classes, this presentation offers a glimpse into the insight gained through HoMA School’s art history lectures, discussions, gallery and vault visits, and film screenings.

Through the Lens of an Inky Mess

@ VOL 29 ON FEB 17, 2017

Andy Lee’s life is intertwined with the use of sumi ink.  Initially, it was used as a tool for revolt, then as a metacognitive exercise, then as a tool to judge how well he knows someone, but mostly the ink and brush served as a conduit for imagination.
A former illustrator for Image, Marvel and D.C. Comics, DragonballZ magazine, Neopets, and Nike among others, Andy now teaches full time at Kaiser high school and the Honolulu Museum of Art School.
The presentation will reveal Andy’s origins and specify some revelatory experiences while painting.

PKN Posters: Champaign-Urbana Vol. 13

Upon unrolling this poster (designed by the very talented Ghada Yousef) found in our mailbox this morning we were at once struck by its hand-crafted look and bold choices in typography. Champaign-Urbana organizer Christina Wondra passed on this info from Yousef on the Vol. 13 poster-crafting process: This poster was printed using two different printing methods. The sponsors logos at the bottom were printed digitally at Dixon Graphics. The rest of the design was printed in one layer using a letterpress machine (Vandercook SP15) at The Living Letterpress. The process included finding the perfect set of typefaces, setting them up, and proofing them. The design included both wood type and metal type along with some images.  After printing the posters, they were set on drying racks to let the ink fully dry, which usually takes around 48 hours. Check out the PKN Champaign-Urbana Vol. 13 event page for more details on this exciting evening. To see more great posters from PechaKucha Nights all over the world, check out our Tumblr blog.

Tasty Buddha

Surely these snacks will assist in attaining enlightenment.

In addition creating miniature, crunchy corn bodhisattvas, he uses old Japanese pottery repair techniques (kintsugi) to mend broken potato chips, and coats chips with ink to create a sort of stamp on paper.

Inc. Magazine Likes PechaKucha

Ever find yourself wondering how you can add more pep to your presentations? Well, Inc. magazine wondered the same thing, in a business setting, and the latest issue includes a great piece that reveals just how practical the PechaKucha "20 images x 20 seconds" format can be, and how some companies are already using it.  Here's what Autodesk CEO Carl Bass had to say about the format: “For a while, I required my staff to present this way,” says Bass, who complains that most speakers think more about how much they have to say than about how much the audience wants to hear. “It makes people crisp,” he says. “It forces them to organize their thinking.” You can read the full article online here.
