Ahhh... The life of a cartoonist. This week I'm in the beautiful Westin La Paloma resort near Tucson, AZ. I'm working for another great client who were excited about having a digital caricaturist in the booth. Trade shows come in all sizes, the massively large where you can spend the better part of the day walking from one end of the floor to the other.... and then there is this type, very small, very intimate, with just a couple dozen companies manning their booths. Still, attending these small shows is as important to an up and coming company as the Coca Cola booth is to an international restaurant convention. I have been drawing many hours, making potential clients happy... and that is what it's all about. I lived in Phoenix when very young and I still am mesmerized by the desert. And the desert is particularly beautiful in the spring. Cacti have flowers, the deadly heat has not arrived and wild animals are abundant. A beautiful resort doesn't hurt the experience either.
