PIPIT and Animation Lecture at UniKL

Made my way to Central Market last Saturday evening to attend the PIPIT 1st Anniversary celebration. Didn't know exactly what to expect except that it's an artist gathering's excuse to chill out,enjoy art and mingle around with other like minded art junkies. There was a cool band drumming away in the open air right in from of the market hall. Rendered a nice atmosphere in the bustling area.

Think I had most fun going 'round the shops to look out for some neat stuff to
purchase. Found some worthy items which I purchased along the way. A Ratatouille poster, a piggy keychain...artistic postcard....etc.

Anyways, got to the venue at Annexxe just directly behind the hall,outside. Artists were listening to some contemporary tunes being drummed out by a solitary musician at the keyboard while the rest perused around the place looking at the streaks of artworks strewn all over the walls and ceilings. I handed in my rough cardboard artpiece, as requested for each Pipit attendee to hand in at the counter. Think you guys can spot which one is mine?

There it is! The one with the big Pitpit word scribbled onnit, 2nd from left on the floor.







Enjoyed perusing thru' the elephant art gallery located directly below from where the event was held. Some really cool stuff,only I don't have that much moolah to throw around to get me one of those pieces.

Also attended a Malaysian animation history lecture by Grandfather at UniKL yesterday morning.He said to attend to brush up on my history knowledge again...glad I didn't miss it in a way. Got to meet up with some ol' familiar faces there too.


Grandfather talking on some of the stop-motion animation works done by Mr. Wong Pak Ting @ TGV studios in Cheras. Good stuff! Didn't get to stay long enough to watch the animation shorts and for the Q & A session,was in a rush to get back to cyberville but nvm,there's always a next time.
