Drawing Tells a Better Story

BY RODI ALKADER
@ VOL 19 ON OCT 10, 2015

In response to the ongoing refugee crisis from Syria and parts of the Middle East. Kyoto-based researcher, and Syrian national, Rodi Alkader, has been drawing his thoughts on paper for years, but as the crisis continues to unfold, his drawings became a profound way for him to deal with his emotions. In this very personal presentation, "Drawing Tells a Better Story", from PechaKucha Night Kyoto Vol 19, Rodi shares his family's situation and adds a unique voice to the conversation. This presentation was part of the special PechaKucha Night Huddle held in Kyoto in October 2015.

Drawing to Document

BY CHARIS LOKE
@ VOL 10 ON JUL 27, 2019

The act of drawing is imbued with power: we draw to see, to record, to understand, to shape the world. Reflecting on her experiences documenting street protests, election rallies, and gatherings through on-site sketching, Charis Loke speaks about the importance of drawing - for anyone, everyone - as a way to bear witness and be in the world. 

Charis Loke is an illustrator and educator based in Penang. Drawing upon literature and visual culture, she evokes wonder and curiosity through stories. She's also Comics + Illustrations Editor at New Naratif where she commissions and works with Southeast Asian artists.

A former resident artist at Rimbun Dahan, Charis also makes illustrated microfiction inspired by SEA when she's not working on publishing or nonprofit projects. She designs geeky baju, sketched the 14th General Elections, and explained asexuality by way of sambal. Her work has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators Los Angeles and shown at Light Grey Art Lab as well as other galleries around the world.
