Right,this time round me and :iconphoenixq: decided to share the burden of organising the devmeet,and as a consequence it's looking far more organised already. We're aiming to have it the weekend after easter(22nd of April) so as to avoid any family/religious obligations that'd stop people showing up. At this moment we've laid out a rough shcedule for the afternoon's fun and games

12-12:30 meet
12:30 Food/get to know people
1:30 Lighthouse/GoMA visit
3:00 Photoshoot/Sketching session at various points round glasgow city center
4:30 Traditional Pocky Run  
5:00 Cake and Cookies in the park
6:30 Booze for the elder deviants if they so wish

We dedcided that,fun though they were,the previous Scottish Devmeets were lacking in actual artistic content.To remedy this,we've got a three hour block of artistic goodies starting with a trip to either The Lighthouse or the Gallery of Modern Art(GoMA). This will largely depend on the exhibits at both nearer the time but it is know that the Lighthouse will be hosting an exhibit called 'Architecture in Scotland 2004 –2006' featuring a varied selection of works in scotland from the last two years,including A'Chrannag on Rothesay by Gokay Deveci(lecturer at RGU who was one of my tutors last year).
Following the Lighthouse/GoMA trip,we'll begin what's become a regular event at recent devmeets,our Pocky run.But we'll be adding a twist to this one.Instead of just getting to Chinatown as quickly as possible,we're going to take our time and pass several noteable buildings and backdrops to allow for photographic and artistic oppertunities.I'll scout out specific buildings,areas and routes nearer the time but I will try to cater for everyone.

I'll also be using the 'neighbours' function to invite as many people as possible to this.Here's hoping it's a great success...

Luego,Kris

the july meet was little more than artists sitting in a pub. The april one was ace though. Been unable to organise a proper one for this time of year due to work,but I'm trying to throw together a small one at the end of november as a farewell to one of us.I'll let you know details once they're more formed

Hey I'm from Glasgow, and interested in this :), what exactly is it all about, and is there an age limit?
Reply
:icongall-4185:
Gall-4185 Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2006
no,there's no age limit on the daytime portion. It's just a chance to meet some scottish deviants and have a fun day and do some art based activities

Yeah, I'm lead modeler for HB. And yeah, kamjar's awesome :D

He was saying he was doing work for Loudon Studios, but when I asked him if it was the one in Glasgow, he said it wasn't. Odd.

If you need any web work subcontracted, btw... ;)

Yes, kam works at the loudon-studios thats based in glasgow although he is based in holland, I own and run loudon studios, He perhaps doesn't know I am from glasgow, he knows I am from scotland though.
