Darrin Caddes (@unclewillard) is a father and vice president of corporate design for Plantronics, so his days were already pretty full when he decided at the start of 2013 to take on a personal creative challenge - to create a drawing every day for a year.

His sketches are funny, sad, inventive, and great and three years in (and still going strong!) his "Daily Doodle" project illustrates the power of a regular creative habit.

Art of the Pencils

@ VOL 16 ON SEP 01, 2016

“Pencil is a small thing that can make a big difference in the lives of people who use them.”

In "Art of the Pencil" from PechaKucha Night New York Vol.16 , Caroline Weaver, amateur pencil collector but lifelong pencil lover, founded CW Pencil Enterprise in November 2014. With her pencil experts, Caroline digs up the stories and origins of these objects and make them accessible to those who appreciate them for their functionality, beauty and history. As simple as it may be, the pencil is something which despite advances in technology will never become obsolete.

Watch Your Energy Usage, Take Up Politics, and Enjoy Some Green Urban Environments

Presentations Small changes in our lifestyle can have a rather large impact on energy consumption. In "Human Habitat: The Evolution of Efficiency" (from PKN Bozeman Vol. 2), Chris Dorsi goes through the KWH usage of various countries, to illustrate our energy-heavy habits and raise awareness. How important are politics to you? In "All Colors Together" (in Portuguese, from PKN Curitiba Vol. 1), Renan Molin hopes to show everyone how important it is to participate in the world of politics, and uses the Obama campaign as a point of reference. Terapia Urbana is a technology-based company in Seville that uses nature to solve energy problems caused by buildings in cities where greenery is far from abundant. "More Green in the City" (in Spanish, from PKN Seville Vol. 12) includes a few of their projects, and you'll be introduced to a few vertical gardens -- for both the outside and interior of buildings -- as well as other "green" innovations. Posters Quite a few additions to our Tumblr blog today, including posters/flyers for PKN Williamsburg Vol. 1, PKN Ornskoldsvik Vol. 1, PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 3 (above), and PKN Vancouver Vol. 22.  Photos Here are today's photo galleries, as well as a fun teaser video for PKN Barcelona Vol. 16, which took place this past Friday. The photo above is from the PKN Vienna gallery. PKN Dnipropetrovsk Vol. 1 [Flickr] PKN Dunsborough Vol. 3 [Flickr] A collection of photos from PKN Vienna [Flickr] PKN Sofia Vol. 9 [Flickr] PKN Maastricht Vol. 14 [Flickr]  httpv:// We also have this fantastic report from PKN Philadelphia organizer Bradley Peniston -- yes, it's a bit old, it had gotten lost somehow and just recovered -- about his experience in introducing PKN to nearby Scranton. Last Saturday, January 28, PechaKucha Night Philadelphia took its show on the road, driving two hours north to mount the first PechaKucha Night in the city of Scranton. I thought the event went well for a city's first show: we had eight presenters who spoke to a standing-room-only house of 60 or so. Here's the story: A few months ago, as I was planning a weekend getaway with my brother, a thought occurred: why not plant a PechaKucha seed in a new city? I had already settled on a destination: Scranton, Pennsylvania, once a powerhouse industrial city, now home to a more diversified economy that includes several colleges and design shops. Sitting atop vast deposits of coal and iron ore, the city was the first in the United States to produce iron railroad rails, and the first to build electrically powered trolleys -- lending it the nickname the Electric City. Today, Scranton remains the sixth-largest city in the state of Pennsylvania. The next step was to seek help on the ground. I googled "Scranton and PechaKucha," and made contact with a librarian at the University of Scranton who had once delivered a 20x20 talk at a conference. She wasn't available to speak, but she helped me find a venue (the Vintage Theater and Cafe) and a co-organizer, Mandy Boyle, who works at one of Scranton's web design firms. Together, we rounded up a slate of eight speakers. In early January, we reached out to local media, and hit the jackpot. The Weekender, the leading local arts & entertainment weekly newspaper, put the upcoming PechaKucha Night on its cover. The piece, "What would you say in six minutes and 40 seconds?" came out on Wednesday, January 25. The following day, Scranton's daily newspaper, the Times-Tribune, ran a similar story: "High-speed PowerPoint presentations engage at Vintage Theater's PechaKucha Night." Armed with as much publicity as we could have hoped for, we opened the doors at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 28. People started streaming in, and by showtime, we had about 60 packed into the cafe. This was the lineup: “Life Lessons from the Gateway Cinema” by Mandy Boyle, SEO team lead at Solid Cactus “How to Slow Down Time” by “Welcome To Scranton” author Greg Halpin "#ScrantonMovieNames” by Michelle Davies, an co-contributor “Stained Glass & the Passing of an Old World Art” by founder Harold Jenkins “Restoring the Slope” by Leadership Lackawanna Class of 2012 member Gerard M. Hetman “Library Crimes & Misdemeanors” by newspaper librarian Brian Fulton “In Pursuit of the Light” by professional photographer Brent Pennington “Preparing America to Compete in the 21st-Century Global Economy” by technology trainer Michael J. Murphy The show itself went off well. I was quite proud of the presenters, all of whom did a fine job -- especially given that none of them had even ever seen a PechaKucha presentation before. Everyone at the cafe seemed to have a good time, and there were plenty of people afterward who asked about presenting at a future PKN. The day after the show, the Times-Tribune ran yet another story: "Scranton takes on global phenomenon with slideshow event." Links A few interesting posts and event reports from around the web.

Creating a Sustainable Farm

Juicy mushrooms, honey-filled bee hives, and golden eggs. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Creating a Sustainable Farm" from PKN Fairfield Vol. 1, agriculturalist Faith Reeves goes into depth on the techniques and practices necessary to run a successful, fruitful farm. Faith has taken what was once conventionally-farmed land and transformed it into a vivacious habitat for animal and plant life. Among her passions are interrupting waste streams, creating places for wildlife to thrive, and of course encouraging the diverse production of food for the Sky Factory Farm staff.

Virtual vs. Habitable Space

Do your virtual interactions weigh down on you?  Viviana De Loera challenges architects, builders, and designers to compare the virtual “templates” designed by for-profit companies like Google and Facebook to the frenzied condo living, boxed dwellings, and office spaces we exist in every day. In "Virtual vs. Habitable Space" from PKN Toronto Vol. 26, Viviana asks, "What are we teaching the 'template generation' in both their virtual and habitable spaces?"
