Mortgage Caricature-Cartoon of the Week

 

Sandra-Lethby-Logo

The Story Behind the Cartoon

This cartoon is actually a logo designed for a client. She is a mortgage broker and wanted the image for signs and trade show promotion. The idea is that she can take you down the path of the yellow brick road from the Wizard of Oz to the perfect home. I hope the logo helps her in her business.

Caricaturing the Burlington Force Basketball Team-Cartoon of the Week

Burlington Force Group Caricature

The Story Behind the Cartoon

As a caricature artist you get all kinds of requests. Often I will be given a picture of a team and then asked to create a team picture. To me making a picture that represents the picture given to me seems redundant. I normally suggest we put the players in a practice situation to add some energy in the picture. Although this was an in depth caricature with all the people it was still fun to do. The Burlington Force is a basketball team in the minor leagues. Of course you new that. Enjoy!

Load Surfer Cartoon-Cartoon of the Week

LS-Kapuni-Newspaper-adThe Story Behind the Cartoon

It is funny what you will find when backing up your files. This company isn’t in business anymore but for years I worked with them on various illustration projects and advertisements. They wanted a surf beaver as a mascot for ads and then they would have me create comic strips around them for magazine advertisements. They were always fun projects and paid well, too bad they dissolved and everyone moved on. This company was in the trucking industry and used to match freight with trucking companies.

Getting Married Country Style-Testimonial

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:

Guests take over drawing at party!

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
