Outdoor Drawing Class : Zoo Negara & Artist Colony

Every semester I have to bring out the animation students from UiTM for a drawing session at our National Zoo in Ulu Klang. The Drawing class for them are mostly Figure drawing, but they are also required to have some study sketches on animals. Where else can we find a big collection of animals for that purpose. Zoo Negara of course.
So yesterday, to the Zoo we went to meet our animal models.

It happens that the total of students for this semester is a small number. So I cramped everyone in my small van and we head for the zoo.
But before that, a stop for breakfast and teh tarik at TTDI Jaya.

The animation kids this semester are from left, Rahimah, Azza. Ain, Wan and Sya.

The zoo is always full of visitors during weekends and the school holidays, but we are there on a Monday so we have the place all to ourselves.

We started off with the Giraffes.

The kids have done a lot of good sketches on the animals and I am quite please with their effort. Will check and criticise their effort in the coming session. Good job guys.

On the way back I took them to the Artist Colony in Jalan Conlay KL. One reason is for lunch because the kids would like to have rice and second is to let them meet the artist and their works at the colony. Furthermore, I myself would like to meet my artist friends. I haven't been visiting them for quite some time.

We are back at Puncak Perdana campus by 5.00 pm.
Its been a good session guys. Hope you guys enjoyed the trip, and don't forget to bring your zoo's drawing for the next class.

With Wiz Kudowo a Ghanaian artist at the Colony in 2007. He brought news from Larry.

As for my friend Larry, we haven't keep in touch since Florence until in mid 2007, an artist name Wiz Kudowo from Ghana came and look up for me at the Colony. Larry gave him my address. He gave Larry a phone call and I did managed to update things with Larry.We sure hope that we could meet up again one of these days either here or anywhere.

Akmal's wedding at Bukit Jelutong in December 2008

As for Akmal, he came back to Malaysia for good in 2007 after being given a stern warning by his mother. Akmal now is an architect with Hijjas Kasturi. He is married to a sweet lass Fazrin in December 2008. They are now waiting for their fisrt baby. Akmal lived and worked in London for ten years. During my stay with him in London, he did lent me 60 pound and on top of that I will never forget his hospitality. Thank You Akmal.

'Florence Memory' Oil on Canvas 2002

Immedietly after coming back, I managed to transfer my memories of Florence and the travel on canvas. I came up with four pieces of oils and sold all of them.
I encountered with the piece above in 2008 after it have been changing hands for three times. Since I don't have any of those pieces left , I exchanged for it with two pieces of my new works. Now it is safely in my hands and I will never part with it agin.
