Spirited Figures

@ VOL 116 ON JUL 30, 2014

Graphic designer and character designer Cesc Grané speaks about his amazing creations inspired by Japanese aesthetics and myth. Cesc began by taking cues from yokai (old Japanese monsters and spirits) and putting his own unique spin on their appearance and how they are connected. He tells us how the ethos of Japan has inspired him daily, and recounts stories of his fantastical daydreams involving monsters, heroes, and mischievous creatures of all sorts.

Creating Sustainable Cities

@ VOL 15 ON MAR 16, 2018

Christian Vassie explains how creating sustainable cities requires citizens and politicians to park their differences on the energy transition and other environmental issues. With York having had no Local Plan or vision for its future for over 60 years as a direct result of the inability of its politicians and citizens to work constructively together, and with climate change an ever-growing challenge, we have to dump the party rosettes and get serious. Fortunately there are plenty of other cities across the EU to show us how it is done.

Depictions of bodily contortions and mudras of the hand are crafted into relic-like objects.  From art historical sources, junk piles, and yoga practice, Lisonbee derives a painting process akin to devotional meditation.

PechaKucha Night Vol. 1 in Tegus

Greetings from Tegucigalpa, or we locals call it, Tegus! In 3 very short weeks we will be launching the first PechaKucha Night ever in our Central American country of Honduras. We have just revealed our amazing poster designed by the very talented designer Alicia Medina, a cool lady whose experience includes illustration, branding, and art direction among other things. The poster design is based on popular local handicrafts that are a symbol of Honduras - handpainted clay roosters in bright, happy colors.  During this first volume of PechaKucha Tegus we'll be sharing stories from chefs, yoginis, actors, film directors, artists, street artists and even beer brewers. It's bound to be a vibrant mix of ideas and interesting people on this warm summer night.  We'll keep you all posted on how our very first night goes. We're really excited and we think it'll be a total hit. Til next time!
