This artist is happy to draw everyone!

There are a lot of issues going on right now in the world regarding race, colour, and creed. I am happy and proud to say I have met people from many cultures and locations around the world and have had a great time with many of them. When I look back at the events from this last week alone I realize I have drawn many different people within my area. Early in the week we drew for our friends in the Six Nations community around the Caledonia area for their Mental Health and Pamper Day. We had a ball drawing the folks there. We ended out the week drawing at a Purim event north of Toronto for a small group that created an interesting event with their masquerade ball. I would like to thank both communities for having us out and hope to be out again in the future. Below are a few shots from the events.

Caricature Artist Relates to 45 Years of Trucking!

Have you ever wondered what to give your boss or that special coworker for a gift on their retirement? Finding that perfect gift in a shopping mall probably won’t happen. Caricatures make perfect retirement gifts for those at the end of their careers. Recently we created a retirement gift for a truck company owner after many years in the industry. It was a last minute gift and was a hit when presented.

Here is what the client had to say:

Name or Company: Peter Hodge Transport

Service provided: Gift caricature

Service rating: Excellent

Additional Comment: The perfect gift. Great service and correspondence. Bruce and Carmen made it all happen so flawlessly.

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.

Caricature artist rocks Chamber of Commerce

I have had some great events over the last few weeks as have many of my caricature artist friends. As many know some events are event imagemore fun than others. I recently did an event for the Chamber of Commerce in Brantford Ontario and rocked the house. It was such a fun event that the drawing and laughter didn’t stop. The entertainment was so popular we received two more bookings within 24 hours of the event. Now that is rocking an event!

Caricatures make great work gifts!-Testimonial

Caricature artists are busy people this year whether drawing at events or completing studio gifts for presents. This is becoming very popular  for work environments as people want unique gifts for their teams. There are many reasons from retirement gifts through to team bonding events.

I recently completed a group caricature for a returning client for their team party. Apparently they had a blast with this one, it looks like a good place to work.

People are often retiring at the end of a year and we recently completed this retirement gift for a client. This was a rush job and it was good to be able to help her make the event a success. Below is the completed caricature and comment from the client.

The client’s Comments:

Name or Company: Sheryl P

Service provided: Gift caricature

Service rating: Excellent

Additional Comment: From the very start of my process to the very end it uncomplicated and extremely professional! Bruce (as well as his wife) were able to deliver a beautiful caricature of a co-worker (for a Retirement Party) in an extremely timely manner. I had one week to have this done as a gift and it was delivered to me two days before the event. Bruce kept me informed along the way with two drafts and was even willing to change the final caricature if need be. His work is beautiful! Thank you Bruce for your great work and professionalism. GREAT JOB!

Save money by planning ahead for events. Find out what this organizer had to say!

I recently did an event for a returning client at their Christmas party for their company. The year before I was swamped at the event and there wasn’t enough time to draw all the guests. This year I was busy, but due to a layout change the party focus was elsewhere. Last year everyone was in the same room for the evening while this year they were given two rooms so after the dinner many of the guests went to the bar area losing the entertainment value. They had set up myself and a photo booth in one room and the disc jockey and karaoke in the other room. With no room for us to move the entertainment during the event the entertainment return was lower than expected. I was still steady but people had to leave the room to come to me. So next time you are organizing an event for your company think about the flow of the people before, during, and after the dinner to make sure you get the most for your entertainment dollars.

Creative Client Uses Caricatures for Social Media

I recently had a client that was starting a new social media campaign for their restaurant on social media. They contacted us to come out and draw each of their staff members on actual eggs as they are a breakfast restaurant. After I finished explaining to the owner that they had found the wrong artist, not because I don’t draw caricatures but because there was no way I could draw small enough for an egg. After I offered him the name of an artist in his area that may be a do a better job I mentioned I could do something via email allowing for the same effect and better product. He liked the idea and we went ahead with the project.

Here is what the client had to say:

Hi Bruce, they look awesome…!

Kevin

Sometimes short but sweet works for me.

Here are a few of the 12 caricatures completed. If you are ever in the Collingwood Ontario area of Canada check out the Eggsmart Restaurant, they have an awesome team!

Bride Sends Beautiful Testimonial

Making people happy is something I try to keep to the forefront when performing at weddings. This time it really showed as the Bride at a recent event outlines in the message below.

Here is what she had to say:

Name or Company: Jen Ross

Service provided: Live caricature entertainment

Service rating: Excellent

Additional Comment: Bruce is an amazing guy! He is talented and entertaining. At our wedding reception, the guests did not hesitate to sit for their caricatures to be quickly drawn. All of the guests loved Bruce and his unique drawings. I even think the DJ for the music and dancing was a little bit jealous of Bruce, as people seemed to gravitate to him, rather than be on the dance floor. We had an awesome time looking over each caricature that was produced.

Bridal Keepsake is a big hit!-Testimonial

Weddings are a great way for family and friends to get together and I always try to make sure my portion of the event is one to remember.  A few days ago I performed at a wedding for a couple and the event was a big hit. It is a pleasure to know that my efforts helped to make the night a success.

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

It was such a pleasure to meet you, Bruce! We really enjoyed having you at the reception. Thank you for sharing your unique talent with our guests. You were an absolute hit! Our guests were all commenting on how well, the drawings you did, turned out and that it was such a cool keepsake for them. Brad and I are really happy with the colored picture of us that you prepared before hand. I feel that your presence at the reception truly helped to make the night an enjoyable evening for all.
