119 Portraits

BY MIHO OTA
@ VOL 133 ON FEB 24, 2016

“My birthday in 2014, i started asking all my friends to draw me. I set three simple rules: 1) don’t look at others until you’re done with yours 2) draw me on the spot 3) you can not use erasers”

In 119 Portraits from PechaKucha Night Tokyo’s 133rd Volume, Speaker, freelance writer, and sake lover Miho Ota detailed a project from which she had learned a great deal. On her birthday in 2014, Miho had decided to start a portraiture project, asking her artist friends to draw her portrait in a small sketchbook. The rule was simple: draw her on the spot, no erasers, and no looking of others until you finish yours. By her following birthday, Miho had a collection of 119 amazing portraits with countless stories attached to them.

Fragility, Flowers and Contemporary Portraits

BY GREER TOWNSHEND
@ VOL 18 ON AUG 24, 2016

"What I love about the medium is its innate honesty. A drawing lets slip its own history."

 In "Fragility, Flowers and Contemporary Portraits" from PechaKucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol. 18Greer Townshend shares her passion for and practice of drawing.  Her work is frequently underpinned by the concept of fragility, whether related to the process of memory, language or the self. Greer's practice combines portraiture and elements of nature, inferring an inherent connection between the two, and denoting life cycles. Greer will be talking about her take on ‘creating’ contemporary portraiture including her current fascination with all things 'flowering'.
