VisionWare at HIMSS
Trade Show in Chicago on Tuesday, April 14, 2015. Artist(s) Doug Shannon
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.
Conference in San Francisco Bay Area on Tuesday, April 7, 2015. Artist(s) Doug Shannon
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. :)
Corporate Event in San Francisco Bay Area on Thursday, March 26, 2015. Artist(s) Doug Shannon
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. :)
No Jitter - Enterprise Connect
Conference in on Monday, March 16, 2015. Artist(s) Doug Shannon
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!
Burns & McDonnell at DistribuTech 15
Conference in Los Angeles / San Diego on Monday, February 2, 2015. Artist(s) Doug Shannon
San Diego is one beautiful place to be in February and attendees here seemed grateful to be here. This artist was grateful for my client and staff, who are a pleasure to work with. Note the last photo with the French bulldog. Pet caricatures are historically a no-no for me, but something about this little fireplug touched my heart. When I got him in my lap I wanted to make a run for it.
Optum at Aria
Corporate Event in Las Vegas on Wednesday, January 28, 2015. Artist(s)

Zagg at CES 2015
Trade Show in Las Vegas on Tuesday, January 6, 2015. Artist(s) Doug Shannon
CES is the mother of consumer tech shows, so my client, Zagg, who make the best smartphone and tablet peripherals around, naturally wants to make a strong impression. With 150,000 attendees smothering the convention halls for four days, this artist drew his tail off.
Thomson Reuters at AALL 14
Conference in Washington DC / Baltimore / Arlington on Saturday, January 3, 2015. Artist(s) Doug Shannon
I love drawing law profs! They are used to being lampooned by their students and they never fail to have an opinion, which makes for great conversation. Thanks to all for a fun conference! (more pix coming!)
Google Holiday Party
Private Party in San Francisco Bay Area on Saturday, December 6, 2014. Artist(s)
Guest artist Marcus Sakota joined Rose and myself at the Academy of Science for another big holiday party for our friends in Mountainview. The theme was Sherlock and Watson and a few of the guests went all out costume-wise.
Google Robotics Holiday Party
Private Party in San Francisco Bay Area on Friday, December 5, 2014. Artist(s) Doug Shannon
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.
Scout a Schwab Impact
Conference in Denver on Wednesday, November 5, 2014. Artist(s) Doug Shannon
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.
