The Waiting Room-Cartoon of the Week

The-Waiting-Room-Cartoon

Story Behind the Cartoon

As a truck driver it isn’t unusual for drivers to have long periods of time waiting to unload their trucks. Often you are huddled into a room with little explanation as to why things are taking so long. There have been times in my  career where I felt this could happen. Hopefully it won’t happen to you. Enjoy!

Caricature artist gives the gift of humour at birthday event!-Client testimonial

When you’re drawing for events customers have a lot to do with the entertainment value. If the atmosphere is low and stuffy an entertainer can look out of sorts if they are too flamboyant. That being said if the guests like to have fun then the entertainer can have fun with the guests making the event more memorable. At a recent birthday event I had a good time laughing with the guests and apparently they enjoyed themselves very much. Thank you to Fiona for having me out to draw at her party. It was a great time.

Here is what she had to say:

Name or Company: Fiona Engineer

Service provided: Live caricature entertainment

Service rating: Excellent

Additional Comment: It was an absolute pleasure having Bruce attend my birthday party! Bruce arrived promptly and got set up with little assistance. His creative drawings and personality were the start of the show! He brought a very positive, humorous and lively vibe to the night. Everyone loved their drawings and enjoyed their time with Bruce. I would definitely recommend Bruce to anyone looking to add some pizzaz to their event!

Drawing the Reunion

We had some great events over the weekend. We helped West Credit High School celebrate 30 years educating students by drawing caricatures at their reunion. Judging by the crowd a lot of people went to school there. We also helped a beautiful lady celebrate her 40th birthday by drawing for her and her guests at her home dinner party. Thank you to all the events that had us out and we look forward to drawing you again sometime.

Here are a few pics from the event:

I recently did a wedding that was just a ton of fun. It was a beautiful wedding with the Bride and Groom being together for a long time. What makes a great wedding? Good people, good food, and great music all help to make a great event. Of course a caricature artists never hurts. Congratulations to Vanessa and Jerry, may they have a wonderful life together.

You Forgot Your Pants-Cartoon of the Week.

The Story Behind the Cartoon

Have you ever been so excited to get started on a project and you totally forgot about everything else? I have so many projects going on in my head that I jump out of bed and can’t wait to get started. Now that the world is heading more towards video not taking a minute to make sure you are fully dressed may cause you to show more about yourself than you normally would. Of course that is one way to increase your social media shares.

Seniors are drawn to open house event-Testimonial Retirement Home

Yes the title was a pun! I recently entertained at an open house for a retirement home in Mississauga, Ontario. There are some great feelings you get when entertaining in retirement homes. You realize many of these folks just want someone to talk to, while others are happy to just be around people. What gets me the most are the stories. I met many people that were in their 90’s and were still laughing and joking like they were young. I am always amazed at the history of a room when I draw for seniors, war veterans to artists, and more. If you ever get to draw for seniors make it a goal to learn about them. It may surprise you to who is sitting in front of you.

Here is what the client had to say about the event:

Name or Company: Chartwell Heritage Glen Retirement Residence

Service provided: Live caricature entertainment

Service rating: Excellent

Additional Comment: Bruce was very professional! Great with our residents, staff and outside community members that came to our Open House event. I will be passing on Bruce Outridge Productions information through our corporation and friends. Also, having the company back to our building for more events and other services.

Here are few pictures from the event:

The Story Behind the Cartoon

Now that the weathers turning nicer golfers will be getting ready to hit the courses if they haven’t already. Every year I feel I should be having a talk with my golf balls much like my kids before an outing. These golf balls just like kids of course don’t listen either. Oh well, happy golfing!
