Speaking at Pecha Kucha Night Hyderabad Vol. 8

I was recently invited as a speaker at Pecha Kucha Night Hyderabad Vol. 8, held at Lamakaan on March 31, 2012.

Pecha Kucha Nights are informal events organised in over 500 cities across the world, where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps - just about anything really. Presentations are made in the PechaKucha 20x20 format - 20 images x 20 seconds.

In my presentation, 'Know Tools, Create Better', I used examples of my drawings, photos, digital art, animated shorts and Doom levels to highlight the role of software tools in my creative process, and why I think every artist should learn them.

This was my first talk ever at a public forum, and it was a lot of fun! The official video of my presentation is now up on YouTube:

Hope you like it!

On a related note, my brother Karthik spoke at PKN Hyderabad Vol. 6. You can watch his presentation here: 'My Movie Fan Artwork'. And on an unrelated note, my Engineering college had its Decennial Day Celebrations on the same day as this event, 31-Mar-2012. Congratulations CVR!
