3Qc at Construction Managers
Conference in San Francisco Bay Area on Monday, October 20, 2014. Artist(s) Doug Shannon
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.
3M at AHIMA
Trade Show in Los Angeles / San Diego on Sunday, September 28, 2014. Artist(s)
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!

Conference in Washington DC / Baltimore / Arlington on Monday, July 14, 2014. Artist(s)
Microsoft partners from all over the world invaded our nation's capital to learn stuff and have a little fun in the process. Our client contributed to the fun by providing two EventToons artists, as well as a Harley Davidson drawing, to draw traffic and spark some smiles. Glenn and I really had a ball drawing literally nonstop for the entire exhibition hours. Our subjects really appreciated the contrasting style—Glenn being very detailed and illustrative and myself more spare and cartoony. And we really enjoyed our subjects, including the last one in the photos above, who I daresay is the most toon-ogenic I've ever drawn.

Librarians are awesome subjects for caricature. No, I don't mean they are funny looking but rather that they are smart and curious and appreciative. It was a total delight for this father daughter team to draw traffic for Thomson Reuters. With the line going around three sides of the booth there was plenty of traffic for the sales team to connect with. Check out the last photo panorama showing 47 people in a queue. Viva Las Vegas!

Pity the hospital administrator. Everyone wants to live forever but nobody wants to pay. There are a lot of companies out to make tracking and servicing hospital patients easier and more cost efficient, including my client, who stood out in this crowded field by, among other strengths, having EventToons caricatures at their booth!
Scout at Morningstar 2014
Conference in Chicago on Wednesday, June 18, 2014. Artist(s) Doug Shannon
Money doesn't really make the world go around but it certainly makes the ride smoother. toward that end financial advisors from all over descended on McCormick Place to look for new places to grow their clients' money. Some went home with a caricature which isn't a bad investment either.

Conference in Chicago on Wednesday, May 21, 2014. Artist(s) Doug Shannon
Rose and I are becoming quite a little father/daughter team! We got to see Chicago at its sunny and not-too-windy best and we got to wow attendees at this conference, medical librarians from all over the country, who hadn't seen anything like this before. Our live digital caricature really makes a great impact on a smaller conference like this. Word gets around fast and it was no time at all before the Thomson Reuters booth had a steady stream of folks stopping by. To give you an idea of how much traffic we got, take a look at the panaoramas above, both taken within 30 seconds of each other when I was returning from a quickee break. It was between sessions and the floor was pretty dead but there is no rest for the wicked. Check out Rose's work in the blog entry below!

Trade Show in Atlanta on Tuesday, May 13, 2014. Artist(s) Doug Shannon
Cloud engineers tend to be interesting subjects because they don't have to be well groomed or charismatic they just have to be smart. Which makes them more likely for some reason to shave their heads and grow beards. Mysteries abound. Which makes for some fun caricatures. Most fun I've had in Atlanta ever!
