My Pecha Kucha!

As promised, here is my presentation at Pecha Kucha here in Vancouver. I was a bit nervous as I don’t normally speak in front of 500+ people and it was tricky to do it without any control over the slides but I survived!

  • JUSSSTTTIINNNN

    i have a tiny toy of that pig-in-the-pickle-car
    GOOD CHOICE!

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      where did you get the toy? i am on a mission to collect Richard Scarry’s books but never thought about the toys

      • JUSSSTTTIINNNN

        hmm ive had that toy since i was litle so im not exactly sure where i got it, but it think it might’ve been from mcDonalds~ hmm

        ohman AND i remember we had “the busy world of richard scarry” video game for the sega genesis. i miss that.

  • http://www.sorryzorrito.com Manuel

    Yeah, cool pecha kucha!

      i should scan in all the drawings from that one sketchbook they are hilarious

      • http://www.shapesofsweetness.com Corey Thompson

        I think you should do a post about your drawings from that sketchbook. It’s always nice to see work from when you were young.

  • Ann

    jeff hamada, good man. :)

  • Corinna

    Haha I liked that, you’re funny Jeff :)

    Your first drawings made me smile, cause some of them were very similar to mine that age..

    good job!

  • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

    thank you both! maybe my whole presentation shoulda been the drawings haha

    • Corinna

      the rest was great too 😉

  • http://www.greatbritons.ba.com Jon

    Great stuff!

  • http://www.phillipjorgensen.com Phillip

    Yeah, talented speaker. I’m glad you mentioned Denmark heh.. I believe that’s not very often that country is mentioned in the US heh..

    And funny to see the face behind this website heh..

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      im from Canada actually – the talk was here in Vancouver

  • Rebeca

    there was a pecha kucha night in my city once, very few were as entertaining and funny as you, superb job :)

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      thanks rebeca

  • http://coroflot.com/cwbenfung Cho-Wai Ben Fung

    Hi Jeff,

    Yeah, it was a great talk. It is also great that you are honest about yourself, how you approach you work and above all you expressed the humble character that most successful people have.

    I too get nervous when I have to present.

    Good for you for helping the people in Sri Lanka to build their homes after Tsunami. You took many meaningful and beautiful photos.

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      hey thanks for the kind words Cho-wai! my trip to Sri Lanka is probably the thing im most proud of and maybe the best experience of my entire life so far. i’d like to go back there actually

  • http://www.phillipjorgensen.com Phillip

    sorry.. ofcourse.. canada heh.

  • http://coroflot.com/cwbenfung Cho-Wai Ben Fung

    Yeah, that is a good idea.

  • Kyle

    Nice job, this is a great video and captured the evening very well.

    Cheers!

  • emily

    – but it has made me really want to see some of your ceramics work

  • Gretchen

    You were pretty awesome. I think everyone who presented was nervous. Your presentation was funny and you inspired a lot of people. Cheeeesy but true!

  • http://twitter.com/thecarol Carol

    congrats!
    PKN is a fantastic event, I’ve been to the origin place in TOKYO and had a lot fun! :)

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

Ultimate List of all the Best Art + Photo Tumblrs to Follow

ultimatearttumblrlist-4

 

*Update April 28th 2016 – We are continuing to update this list, removing Tumblrs that are no longer updated very frequently, and adding more as they are submitted. Please read the text below before submitting your Tumblr for consideration! Thank you all for the help, this has become an amazing resource – let’s keep it going!

 

I am compiling an extensive list of all the art and photography Tumblrs worth following. I would love your help to make this the ultimate list! Please leave a comment below with your suggestions and I will update this list with the best suggestions.

This list will focus as much as possible on Tumblrs that survey new work by different people and credit the creators of the images. Please do not submit Tumblrs that only focus on one person’s work (ie. your own personal portfolio) or mood boards that do not make any effort to link back to the source of the work.

Please share this with friends, the more input we have the better this resource will be!
