I was very excited to be drawing for this group of engineers who are working hard on making machines that can do all that stuff I hate doing, like folding laundry and vacuuming.With any luck I'll be able to send a cute little Picassobot to next year's party to draw the caricatures for me, and then update this blog afterwards.

This is the big one for financial planners. With guest speakers Ben Bernanke and W hisself, not to mention entertainment from Train, there was plenty of opportunity for learning as well as fun. Scout Funds certainly did their share of the latter, bringing yours truly to IMPACT for the 5th consecutive year.

Construction managers from all over convened at the Marriott Marquis. The 3Qc booth was easily the hit of the show and you would be hard pressed to find anyone there who didn't know about us. If you had a photo taken for a caricature to be done in the off hours you'll find it in the downloads section.

1 minute after show opened on third day

3M at AHIMA
This was my fourth year back for 3M at AHIMA and demand grows every year. The queue formed within the first minute of the show opening and didn't let up. The attendees are medical coders, which is a really tough job, especially in the middle of a sea change in the industry. This year I brought along my talented daughter Rose to give me a hand and she did a terrific job doing just that. If I'd had her talent at her age I'd be really good by now! Thanks again to Jolie and the 3M staff who do an amazing job supporting clients and artists alike!

This is where the best of the best legal eagles, many of them bald, migrate annually so I got to draw some pretty big birds including a Federal District Judge or two. Their verdict was pretty near unanimous. Great fun for everyone!
