BY AZIE MORNI
@ VOL 3
ON JUL 01, 2016
Azie Morni shares on her trip to Kelantan during the 2014-2015 yellow flood that affected some areas in the Northern Peninsula of Malaysia. Morni was invited to sketch and document the scenes of the after effect of the flood by an NGO that had an idea to document the tragedy. With the help of Institut Terjemahan & Buku Malaysia (ITBM), Morni and her team managed to produce a book called ‘Eternal Storm-Sekali Air Bah, Selamanya Pasir Berubah’, a book that represents an invaluable written record combining illustrations, photographs and poems about the disaster. The proceeds of the book go towards the redevelopment of the affected communities mentioned in the book.

PKN Boston Vol. 13 Sketch Review
Now here's a different way to experience a PechaKucha Night: through someone's notes. Here's a look at Charlene McBride's notes and sketches taken during last week's PKN Boston Vol. 13.
We're not quite sure who produced the sketches you see above -- just that they were done by Flickr user oinknio -- but we do love some of the PechaKucha graphical riffs on display. You can see a much larger version of the scan here.
As we kick off a new week of presentation highlights -- you do know that we have a terrific "Presentations" section on the site, right? -- with "Sketch Book of Life," presented by Martin Willers at PechaKucha Night in Stockholm Vol. 21. An amazing presentation of sketches, which show how to use the inspiration of life to lift the possibilities of humanity to new heights! Brilliant -- thanks Martin!
PKN Tokyo Love
As spotted at last night's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 72, a bit of love in the air (or on the denim, rather). The photo was found on "sketch projector" Shantell Martin's Flickr photostream -- she was one of the night's presenters, and you can see a few photos of her while presenting up already.
If you didn't grow up surrounded by capacitative touch user interfaces, it's likely you may have one of these around your house as a kid: The magic Etch-A-Sketch screen. In today's "Presentation of the Day" artist Andrea Tilden (at PKN Waterville, Maine Vol. 3) goes into aluminum-particle levels of detail on how she goes about creating and preserving her unique works. Whether you're a Master Etcher, or only skilled enough to etch out stairs or angular castles, this presentation is worth a glance.
Tokyo in Sketches
"The city, I think, has started to influence my drawing already -- it's become more painterly..." In today's Presentation of the Day, "Tokyo in Sketches" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 108, fervent illustrator Adrian Hogan speaks of his passion. While teaching in the northernmost tip of Japan's Honshu island, Adrian developed a habit of sketching anyone he saw -- most especially his energetic students. Here he discusses the evolution of his skill, and how he's transitioned from Aomori-bound instructor to freelance illustrator living in Tokyo.

10 STEPS TO BEING A PKN SPEAKER
1. Identify a topic that you are passionate about. In the spirit of PechaKucha Nights the world over, we are on the look-out for people to come present something they love, their latest creative projects or work. So come along and share your passion or an interesting hobby or a photo essay or anything else you can think of. 2. Send a brief outline of your topic to the City Organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org 3. Wait for a confirmation from the City Organizers. City Organizers have various parameters to judge if the topic is suitable for a general audience. Good PechaKucha presentations are the ones that uncover the unexpected -- unexpected talent, unexpected ideas. Some PechaKuchas tell great stories about a project or a trip. Some are incredibly personal, some are incredibly funny, but all are very different. 4. Once you receive confirmation from the City Organizers, go ahead and put together your 20 slides. 5. Send your completed slide deck to email@example.com 24 hours before the event start time if you would like to retain your speaker slot. This is so that we can set up the slides to autorun and also ensure there are no glitches related to formatting, fonts etc. during the event. 6. Set up your profile on the official PechaKucha website. This mainly includes an email addreess, a photograph and a bio-sketch. City Organizers can help you with this. 7. Decide on appropriate tags AND categories for your completed presentation and send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.Categories and tags offer an opportunity to increase traffic to your presentation which will be uploaded on the official PechaKucha website. If you are unsure of the difference between the two, categories allow for a broad grouping of topics such as art, photography, design, philately etc. But when you want to describe your presentation in more specific terms, you use tags such as books, publishing, minimalist, collectors' item etc. 8. Practise your presentation. Remember there is no 'go back one slide, please' in PechaKucha. And you have exactly 6 minutes 40 seconds to share your story. 9. Show up at least half an hour before start time at the venue. 10. When called to present, clear your throat and make that kickass presentation!
