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.
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!
