I believe it was Elvis Presley that coined the phrase “Viva Las Vegas.” And I just have to say, the life in Las Vegas is incredible! I had the time of my life working at the AWS Re:Invent 2014 conference (reinvent.awsevents.com) at the Venetian Hotel. I was able to use my digital drawing systems to create caricatures there thanks to the gracious invitation from Infosys (www.infosys.com), a global corporation leading the way in consulting, technology, and outsourcing solutions.
A three-day event, the AWS Re:Invent show draws representatives from the leading names in technology and communications to explore the next frontier in global enterprising and data sharing. Drawing for three days, I feel like I must’ve done thousands of caricatures (which is entirely plausible), but I was thrilled to be part of the fun and exhilaration that the event brings every year. It was very exciting to see my work come to life through digital technology while I was surrounded by leaders of the digital world.
I’d like to extend my gratitude to Infosys and AWS for giving me the opportunity to attend Re:Invent 2014 so that I could share my art with you. “Viva Las Vegas!”
