Make the Path by Walking

PRESENTED ON FEB 20, 2019
IN WINNIPEG @ VOL 37

Graphic novelist and teacher GMB Chomichuk, having worked as a freelancer, has frequently dealt with uncertainty. For him, he sees life as a path that we travel on, and to fight uncertainty we have to determine and bring our future to fruition by traversing these paths on foot. GMB explains what we can learn on our life-long treks and encourages us to keep walking in this motivational talk.

GMB's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 37, on February 20 2019, at the Park Theatre.

How To Art

BY HILMAN OMAR
@ VOL 6 ON DEC 19, 2015

Hilman Omar, self-taught artist, talked about how a simple drawing made a big difference in his life. He told how the Internet was a treasure trove of information and knowledge, filled with tutorials of every kind where people were willing to provide what they knew free-of-charge.

He pointed things that other artists like himself may come up against like better artists, bitter criticism and lack of motivation but he gave a solution; attitude. Changing his attitude gave him new light and altered his perspectives.

Path To Free Creativity

BY ALEXANDER INCHBALD
@ VOL 8 ON MAR 14, 2019

When Alexander was 16, his dad told him that he would never make money as a professional artist. This was both the worst and best moment in his life: the worst, because he descended into depression for close on ten years; the best, because if he hadn’t gone that low, he wouldn’t know how to get this high and help others free their creativity.
