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.

Drawing in a stream of consciousness with memories flowing and intermingling, he strives to knit together fragments of the urban skin and details from selected locations around the city. In doing so, each drawing can be traced back to a unique place in Tokyo and how he remember/draws its features.

A Theory on Doodling
"I never felt that I could be an artist, but somehow doodling opened the door for me. It was a way to do art without expectations, and from there I gave myself permission to belong in the category of artist. That was freedom for me."In A Theory on Doodling from Williamsburg Vol. 12, Pam Woodson finds herself drawn to doodling in a couple of very specific situations. Not considering herself as an "artist", she initially used doodling as a door to create art without expectations. Pam found her path to becoming an artist.

Doan Linh Hand Written Letters
“I use handwritten letter to listen and encourage people…” In "Hand Written Letters", from PechaKucha Night Ho Chi Minh City Vol.9, Doan Linh started "Letter to Angel", a non-profit organisation committed to bringing the lost art of handwritten letters back to people in Vietnam and around the world. In this presentation, she shares with us her vision behind L2A and what she hopes to achieve through it. It would be unfair to mention that she’s only 20 years old because her thoughts are much bigger the tiny number! Grab some paper and a pen, you might want to hand write your loved ones a letter right after listening to her talk.
