One of the things I like the most about the annual USk Symposiums are the pre and post symposium meet ups, where, in a very informal way, sketchers get together or just happen to ran into each other. On Tuesday, right before symposium, that is precisely what happened, when via Facebook I arrange to meet with Pramote and KK (Ch'ng Kiah Kiean) at the lobby of their hotel. It was very exciting to meet two sketchers who's work I've been admiring for so long. We spent the afternoon sketching around Barcelona's Cathedral and then wandering around the tiny aisles of Gothic Quarter. Thanks guys for such a beautiful afternoon and the lovely gifts.
