Applying for UK chapter

I personally know that there are a large amount of talented artist working in various related industries of games, movies, advertising and illustration that we could all really benefit from a CG Society chapter based in UK

If anyone else is interested,
please post on here.

I'm personally based currently in central london and it would be great to get together, share ideas, thoughts, sketch and paint together or go on art field trips

Yeah, I agree, meet-ups would be fun. I'm in Derby myself so pretty central I guess!
 
  02 February 2007
Thats not too bad.
I was in sheffield for 7 years prior to moving down to london.

Lots of potential scenery in teh derby/peak district area.
Although we can all decamp to lake district mountains or Snowdonia for a outdoor meet/paint. Heh heh

I'd definitely be up for regular meetings - I think it'd be really beneficial to actually meet other CGS artists face to face. I don't really get much chance to leave the city, though, so if the meetings were to be held elsewhere I'd probably be unable to attend.
 
  02 February 2007
Well, other artists from CA org also meet regularly.

Normally, we meet at nandos, Soho in firth street to eat/draw.
Depending on what is on, Tate britain or local museums are quite attractive as well

I personally am up for anything, or goign out ot nice places to Eat as well
(loads of lovely places to eat in central london, but not many to eat and draw. but perhaps to eat and discuss...art/perspective, methods, what we're workgin on outside the cofnines of NDAs and to just enjoy each others company)

Contacts:

MSN is koshime@yahoo.com

email: koshime@gmail.com

cheers

nandos is only a suggestion (we can try some great places to eat ranging from Dim sum chinese to japanese yautcha and korean Ran)

Where will you be residing Twidup?
 
  02 February 2007
no idea yet.

Dealing with Foxton's right now on trying to locate a place. Any suggestions on some nicer areas, close to soho (like zone 2 or 3 is fine) that are relatively in-expensive and close to transit and shopping?

thanks
-todd

Ah... Saw this thread too late. Otherwise I would've join you guys. The last time I did a group sketches was like 9, 10 years ago back in college days. Hahaha...

Koshime, I just added you in my address book. You can add me to MSN too, my MSN id is sl_new@hotmail.com.

Cheers, guys.

Don't you mean Frith Street, not Firth Street?

I might pop round one evening if there is a meetup since I work quite nearby, although I am more partial to the Pret over the road, instead of Nandos. But Pret isn't really a good place for a group of people. On the other hand, Garlic And Shots is... if you're into garlic. And vodka.

hi there,

the onlyreason why Nandos works is over the past few years, its afford us a chance to sit loads of people, serve food and drinks and opens till 10-11pm without kicking people out, thus allowing for a perfect opportunity to sit and draw and eart
 
  02 February 2007
Understandable. It's just that I don't eat Nandos, which is why I never go there.

Sorry I missed you guys the other night - when are you going to meet up next? Either post back here or feel free to send me a PM, and perhaps we can get a decent number of us in the same spot at the same time!

Hmmm, vodka and garlic - could there be a better combination?
