You couldn't ask for a nicer bunch of folks to draw than hotel owners/operators, as they learned hospitality from the ground up.

This is the mother of health care shows and it swamped McCormick place with IT pros and health execs from all over the world. This artist was fortunate enough to be employed by one of the newest and most original vendors, and they were a real pleasure to work with.

This the fourth or fifth year MRS has invited me back to their Spring conference and demand hasn't dropped a bit. This multicultural bunch of nanotech professionals and graduate school researchers really appreciate a bit of whimsy during what is otherwise a very technical and intense experience. The last photo is what I found waiting for me when I arrived for work at 10a on the second day of the conference. :)

Hiphop themed parties can be hard on us boomers, after all I raised three kids through the teen years and I have PTSD. But when you are drawing caricatures a good beat will really drive you, 'specially when you are up past your bed time. :)

Enterprise Connect celebrated their 25th anniversary by inviting 5000 guests to get their caricatures drawn. OK, there was also an expo hall with some vendors and a full agenda of speakers and sessions, but our little corner had an inside track on the FUN. Thanks to photographer Kevin McKinney for the last five shots above!
