When Le Monde's celebrated cartoonist Plantu visited Singapore in 1999, he gave me
this as a gift. We also had a group exhibition at the Alliance Francaise de Singapour.

This is one activity where I had the habit of pursuing since my Art student days. I don't tire of drawing the female and the male figure - in whatever form, shape and size. Sketching the nude gives an artist, architect or an engineer a basic understanding of the human body, its kinetic properties, both inside and out. It is going to be evident to a consummate sketcher, especially of live models, how the architecture of the body is revealed in the bone mechanism, muscle and tissue construction. It is at the core of what makes great art, architecture, design and engineering solutions.
