Learning About Animation, Kyiv's Iconic Architecture, and "Hearting" Parks in San Diego
Presentations Daniel Muñóz is a character animator, and in this presentation from PKN Miami Vol. 14 he explains the main principles and techniques required to produce animation work that manages to suck viewers in. Oleg Zhary is a photographer who lives and works in Kyiv, and in this presentation (in Ukrainian, from PKN Kyiv Vol. 7), he gives us all a stunning photographic tour of the capital of Ukraine through its iconic objects. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster above, for the upcoming PKN San Diego Vol. 15. Here's more from PKN San Diego organizer Leslee Schaffer on the poster, as well as the event itself:We are holding #15 at a venue in which we are hosting an exhibit for the next two weeks, called Orchids, Onions & Opportunities, an offshoot of our Orchids & Onions program. The exhibit strives to accomplish a lot of things; mostly, true to the mission of SDAF (and why PKN is such a great fit for SDAF) to raise awareness and encourage practical discourse about matters relative to our build environment. It’s focus is on San Diego’s civic spaces, and lack thereof. We usually don’t theme our PKNs, having found that an organically curated event keeps things interesting and works quite well for us. This time, because of the exhibit, and other complementary events we decided to offer Making the Case for Public Space as a theme, and keep it interesting by presenting a range of perspectives on the matter. As fro the event flyer, we are blessed with the support of someone we believe to be one of the most inspired artists/designers ever here in San Diego. Her name is Terri Beth Mitchell. You have already posted a couple of her PKN SD flyers on your site, and we thought this one deserved special attention. Photos We have a couple of photo galleries to share with you today. Above, one of the presenters from PKN San Juan Vol. 6, and below, the crowd at PKN Derby Vol. 5.PKN San Juan Vol. 6 [Flickr]PKN Derby Vol. 5 -- and check out all previous sets as well [Flickr] Calendar Here's what you can look forward to in terms of PechaKucha action tomorrow night (Tuesday, June 12): PKN Aalborg Vol. 8, PKN Toledo Vol. 2, PKN Ottawa Vol. 5, and PKN Hawkes Bay Vol. 2.

And on the cool poster from French graphic design studio Acetone Graphik, Yohann Morvan has this to say: "I see PechaKucha like a big mass of creativity. Each presenter speaks like a 'moralizer' to convince a public...to say 'believe in my idea.'" ... "This poster is composed by impossible type forms and icons, a form of propaganda message ? My treatment in two-color process try to purify for a better and simple read and call back the posters of church concerts in the 50's."
