Artwork by artist Bruce Outridge
We often think of weddings as stuffy events, but much of it depends on the people attending, the families involved, and the location. Hayley and Anthony had such a great wedding. It was a country styled wedding held at the beautiful Belcroft Estates in Ontario just north of Toronto. The wedding was fun to draw and I even got a ride in a 1938 Desoto from the movie “Driving Miss Daisy”.
Here is what the client had to say about the event:
Name or Company: Theresa Scott
Service provided: Live caricature entertainment
How was your booking experience?: Excellent
How was your project/event experience?: Excellent
Additional Comment: Bruce was a big hit at our wedding. While waiting for their pictures to be drawn, he kept guests in great spirits with his entertaining, outgoing personality
Here are some pictures from the event:

My whole goal when drawing at events is to have as much fun as possible and that usually translates to the guests having fun as well. Every once in a while I get a guest who is an artist and are hovering over me watching every stroke so I try to entice them to take a shot. There has been a couple times when everyone was saying how good they are and I have to think if that was such a good idea to give them the marker. This happened at a party not to long ago and we couldn’t stop laughing. Even the kids got involved in drawing me. I guess I will know when I have been fired when the guests take over the drawing!
Here are some pictures of the budding artists

Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends. I was contacted by Vivere Canopy who specialize in hammocks to create an illustration for a social media campaign they have been running all week. Since the illustration was on everything Canada I thought it would be a good one to show today. Have a great day today and Happy 150th Birthday Canada.

Story Behind the Cartoon
I thought since it was Sound of Music 2017 in Burlington Ontario this week I would honour this great festival and band with a music cartoon. This caricature / cartoon was done of two of the members of The Killin’ Time Band here in Burlington Ontario. The band lends their amazing talent and music to both of my podcasts and this was done as a little thank you to the band for being so kind with their talent. I put together a video like this for one of the other bands that also lend their music to the shows and thought it was a great idea to thank all of the bands. If you haven’t got yours yet you will!
So I have taken the video of how I created the caricature, some pictures of events where I have seen the band, and added one of my favourite songs called One Set to Freedom off their album of the same name. They are a truly awesome band and I am happy to say I have gone from fan to friend as I have learned more about the band over the years. If you have a chance to see the band make sure you do, you won’t be disappointed. If you would like to see their schedule or buy their music please visit www.killintimeband.com. If you would like to hear the interview I conducted with Brad Hails of the band please visit cashinginoncreativitypodcast.com.
A big thank you to the band and enjoy the song.
