Stacey Paul Barabie asked me to help out at a event lunch held at the Tin Roof (8371 International Dr, Orlando, FL). The lunch us for Special Events planner who had gathered at the Orlando Convention Center. My role was to execute a sketch that highlighted key concepts from attendees. The day for them started with a trip on the Orlando Eye which is a brand new huge Ferris Wheel which just went up on International Drive. About ten attendees would get onto a capsule on the eye w a moderator who would as them questions about how them questions about how they feel they could improve the event planning industry.
I got to the Tin Roof around 10pm. The band, Sweet Bea and the Boys was busy setting up their sound equipment.It decided to do the sketch digitally and the signal w then transferred to all the flat screen TVs that lined the room. I just had to plug the HDMI cable into my tablet and then I relaxed to draw the stage. I had to wait about an hour before I got on the Eye to sketch one of the meetings. Buses arrived full of conventioneers who then crowded in to a waiting area at the base of the Eye. There they were served champagne an cookies. Albert Einstein from Madam Tussuad's Wax Museum was also there for photo opportunities.
