Inspired in large part by Julian Kucklich‘s tireless efforts, Kong Monirath, Prum Vannak, and Moeu Diyadaravuth will be drawing ‘Sketchnotes’ of BarCamp 2013’s sessions, in Khmer. Stay tuned for more art and news!
Update: Kong Monirath’s draft sketches are in for day one! Still sorting ‘em out:
E-Novel by by លី សុផាត
More sketchnotes to come! After formatting and editing we will post a revised English / Khmer version for each session we cover. For download, see: http://www.flickr.com/photos/105320485@N05/
We produced in excess of sixty pages, and had our biggest turnout yet of both professionals and amateurs.
We would like to thank our ‘artist guides’ Sao Sreymao and Moeu ‘Vuth’ Diyadaravuth for assisting the Our Books team in orienting participants and encouraging newcomers.
Many elected to do the ‘Cambodian Variation’ of ‘One Hour / One Comic’ but stuck around for a little more.
Due to Cambodia’s Pchum Ben holiday our event was held one week early. To encourage other participants during this global event, Our Books will be Facebooking and Twittering art and photos this coming Saturday October 05.
For now, here are some pictures and pages to pique your interest.
