Caricature artist is birthday surprise for party-Client testimonial

When you’re the  surprise for a birthday party passing the guest in the parking lot can be an awkward situation. Recently I did a birthday party event and was a surprise to the guest of honour. I was to arrive at a certain time but as we all do for events arrived early for set up. What I didn’t know was that the person I passed in the parking lot was the guest of honour. She didn’t notice as she was waiting for her husband to park the car, but I had to duck when she arrived inside for the party. Inside I was literally blocking her view of the 60 people hiding in the restaurant bar area. It was a great time with everyone being very happy.

Recruiting through cartoons-Client testimonial

I have the pleasure of working for many different clients from transportation to the arts. Illustration work brings its own challenges in that you have to send the right message out to the audience while trying to make it humorous. Recently I helped a client with their recruiting campaign with a couple of cartoons. It was a fun project and I am sure it will go over well.

Make your event guests comfortable-Live event testimonial

Every caricature artist struggles with making people feel comfortable in the chair when drawing them. I can see the tension in their eyes as they sit down and I often think to myself why did they even line up. So what should the artist do to make someone feel comfortable? First-smile! Smiling is the first way to help someone calm down. Second-ask about them! If you ask people where they live or if they are visiting it creates a point to start a conversation. Talking to people helps them feel comfortable. It works for me and it will work for you. Try it!

Here is what one client had to say after their event:

Name or Company: Susie Giammarino

Service provided: Live caricature entertainment

Service rating: Excellent

Additional Comment: Bruce was great! He made all guests feel comfortable. All of the guests that had a caricature done complimented Bruce and were very happy that they had something special to keep from the event. I would highly recommend Bruce for any event!

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!

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
