Caricaturing Shelley Uvanile-Hesch of WTFC-Cartoon of the Week

SHELLEY-CARICATURE

The Story Behind the Cartoon

This week’s cartoon is a caricature for the Trucking Industry. I gave a caricature to our first presenter for a seminar series in the trucking industry and it was a big hit so I decided I would do this for all the presenters for 2017. Our second presenter was presented with the gift at the seminar on September 12th 2017. Shelley is the CEO of the Women’s Trucking Federation of Canada and was the keynote speaker for the event. Thank you to Shelley for a great presentation. Here are a few pics from the event.

Giving someone a car as a gift!-Testimonial

Have you ever given someone a car as a gift? Well unless you are rich giving someone an actual car can be a real challenge. Why not take that exact sentiment and do the next best thing, give them a picture of their favourite car. I recently completed some car caricatures for a client of her husband’s favourite cars for his birthday. We did the illustrations and she had them printed and framed.  If you want to do this in the future getting pictures over the Summer months is best and it makes great presents for Christmas. Sorry I had to say the “C” word. It may be the best way to give someone the car of their dreams.

Here is what the client had to say:

Name or Company: Leslyn Bertrand-Belec

Service provided: Gift caricature

How was your booking experience?: Excellent

How was your project/event experience?: Excellent

Additional Comment: Bruce, thank you so much for the gift caricatures that you did for my husband. They were exactly what I hoped and I know that he will be thrilled to receive them.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Here are the completed illustrations:

Creating memories with gift caricatures

With several events last week gift caricature production was steady and fast. Among the illustrations completed for clients were two completed for other reasons. The first was done for a guest speaker at an event and the other for my brother for his birthday. Both went over as a big success.  If you are looking for gifts for your next occasion a gift caricature may be the answer.

Drawing the Danny Thompson Band

Bruce and the Danny Thompson Band

As many of you know I host a couple of podcasts, one for artists on how to grow and market their businesses and one for drivers in the trucking industry. I have always loved music and feature some local bands on each show as a way of supporting the arts and to showcase the great talent many of us have in our communities. As a thank you to the band I drew up a caricature of them and recently presented it to the band at a recent event held by the Women’s Trucking Federation of Canada fundraiser. Please check out this amazing band and support their music. You can learn more about them at www.dannythompsonband.com.

Gift caricature-Hospital patient

The Story Behind the Caricature

This was a gift caricature for my friend Nick who is in the hospital. He has been a long term member of an association I belong to and completes the minutes for each meeting. He does amazingly detailed minutes which are usually 10-20 pages long. As he is waiting for his shoulder to recover he said he couldn’t do the minutes because he can only type with one finger. He’s so good at it that no one wants to take his place in fear of not being detailed enough. We did find someone to take them over but I thought of this as if we wouldn’t let him go. he got a good chuckle from this one!

Transform a fun getaway into memories through caricature!

As a caricature artist I get all kinds of people wanting different scenarios for caricature gifts. A present request by a client came in and they wanted a family boat trip transformed into a Gilligan’s Island themed gift.  This one was a lot of fun to do and I wonder how they got the family members to look like the members of the cast. Apparently it was a big hit.
