The latest post up on the State of Tokyo site is a beautifully shot look at the latest PauseDraw event. It’s great to see the event get a nice bit of coverage like this, and big thanks to Alex for the PauseTalk mention — I miss doing those events too.
I have lots of fond memories of the 21_21 Design Sight, from the excitement when it was first announced — I mean, a building designed by Tadao Ando, and led by Issey Miyake, Taku Satoh, and Naoto Fukasawa, holy shit — to getting to work with them a couple of times through PechaKucha, by way […]
There’s a second edition of the Supplement: Tokyo talk series coming up (on March 8), this time featuring Bill Daniel, Craig Mod, Tetsuya Goto, and Eiko Nagase. More details here.
It’s become a tradition that at the start of every year, PechaKucha HQ sends out a massive newsletter looking back at the previous year and highlighting 20 achievements — I used to put these together along with the rest of the team. This year’s edition — which you can read online here — is a […]
I should have shared this much soon, as the deadline for submitting abstracts is just around the corner on February 1, but it’s not too late.

I’m glad to see that the “Ride the Lightning” talk series, organized by the lovely crew at AQ (with a wicked logo design by my ex-Tokyo gaming buddy Ryan Ruel), is still going strong. Focusing on sharing dev and design-related stories, you can follow their Facebook page and Doorkeeper page to make sure not to […]
After taking a bit of a holiday break, I’m glad to see that Luis and Adrian‘s PauseDraw is back in 2017 with its first edition set for February 12 — you’ll find all the details on the Facebook event page.
Some very good news indeed, as we learn through Famitsu that a 5th edition of Japan’s premiere indie game event, the Kyoto-based BitSummit, is officially happening. Not only that, but instead of a sweaty July date, they’ve decided to move up the event a bit to May (it will be held on the 20th and 21st). […]
