Bobby Chiu’s [color=red]Kuala Lumpur Subway Sketch Group JUNE 2005
MEETING LOCATION: KL Sentral Station, Near McD
MEETING DAY: Sundays, 04:00 PM - 04:30 PM
CONTACT PERSON:: Avi, cdtavijit ‘at’ yahoo.com.sg, 016 3 572 576
MEETING NOTES: This is just the starting, lets circulate this around and start the meeting from next week, June 19th onwards. I will come with a redish t shirt written “aiyah”
Other information: Although we dont have subway, but we have LRTs, and i think KL sentral would be nice place since you can come here by putra, ktm or mono rail. Sorry for those who are taking STAR, just change in Masjid Jamek ya.
Dont worry if your drawing isnt great, I cant really draw (seriously, i am a starter), but lets just get together so that we can improve.
For the sketch group i am bought a web space of 2 GB next week and i would like to ask you all to suggest a domain name for it.
And ya, pls suggest suitable timing and location too. And I will keep the news posted here and also in the upcoming website. :wise:

- meeting date/time, is it on: 19th June Sunday, at the McDoland at/inside the SENTRAL station?
Ans: For the time being, yes, it is on 19th June, Sunday, and at KL sentral station. If we got less ppl we can hog a table or two inside mcD and draw. If many ppl, we can go one floor down or see what can be done.
For next meetings, we might as well go KLCC as i think they have more place to sit than KL sentral station. but, lets see how. I will survey the place and post a photo before meeting. Dont worry. =D
- how many people are coming to the meeting?
Ans: I have posted only for 5 hours, and ad got 10 ppl coming. I am not sure I should have happy or scared.
- what do u need (us to bring) to the meeting?
Ans: sketches, sketches, and materials to sketch. We are not asking for portfolios, we are not employers. Just bring your sketch book where we can see what you have done last week or like that while you were waiting for the public tranport or for a friend or what so ever.
- Is the session only for half an hour?
Ans: No no. Since this is the first meeting, i put the buffer timing of half an hour. Get to know ppl, chit chat, and wait for others.
- so someone will do some demo at mcD? will it be too noisy?
Ans: haha, if someone is willing, why not. But for now, i think it will just be more of a personal approach. We show our drawing, no matter how bad it is, and we give constructive ideas on how it can be improved.
edit: ok, since the question popped up (thanks tintoy again), i contacted some people. And it might happen that someone might come to give a demo. I dint ask stahlberg yet, but i was currently looking for someone not that high profile as a start up.
- So how the meeting will be like?
New Idea: We will take the transit and we will draw on this. Say, we take the Putra LRT from KL sentral station. Then we go all the way up to terminal Putra (which is 14 station = 42 mins) and we keep drawing in the train, sitting or standing.
Then we all get down at that station, gather, and discuss about the drawings, share the experience, tips bla bla bla.
We dont have to be in the same place; we can cover the whole train. This way its more fun. right? haha. If anyone objects why you are drawing, give others a call, and we get together inside. muahahah. :twisted:
Then we board again, go back to KL sentral, get down, and discuss again. And then we go back home and meet up next week.
Total cost: 2.40 X 2 = 4.80 rm. Or if you dont want to get out of the station, just buy one way; it counts on distance not on timing.
But this is just the current idea. I pasted the LRT map here so that you all can suggest if you think other stations, or taking KTM would be better. And if you think this is crazy or stupid, suggest something else please.
And i suppose its better than sitting and drawing; at least different than what we do normally.

old idea: for now, the idea is like this, (which is of course not fixed) : we bring our sketch book, show it to others, and others give suggestions on how to improve.
Now, we need to post this also right? So, it would be great if you could scan it and bring it in a cd or sthing. But in case you cant, we can scan for u, but you need to give us that page for that day which we will give you back next week. We will compile it like the bobby chiu’s drawing, and post it up under everyones name like the daily sketch group winners =D
Best sketches? Prizes?
- So far, we are thinking every month we will vote and make the best sketch page as page of the month and one as level winner who shows most improvement. But then again, we will decide it in the meeting and lesse what everyone thinks. I will see if CGtalk can do anything about it or not. Not confirm about this one yet.
And thanks a lot to tintoy for asking these questions. And also others who asked.
