The Car Buff-Caricature of the Week-Testimonial

If you have ever tried to buy a gift for the Boss you know it can often be a hard thing to do. A caricature including many of their favourite hobbies and passions can be a great way to create a unique gift idea. We recently completed a gift caricature for a client from her and her coworkers to the owner and she was thrilled with the outcome.

Here is what the client had to say:

Name or Company: Sue Runions

Service provided: Gift caricature

How was your booking experience?: Excellent

How was your project/event experience?: Excellent

Additional Comment: I couldn’t have been happier with the service and the amazing final product. The caricature was wonderful with unbeatable attention to detail. It was a lot of fun from beginning to end, having Bruce create this beautiful gift for my boss. He’s gonna love it. Thanks again.

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.

It was a last minute gift and was a hit when presented.

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.

Here is what the client had to say:

Name or Company: Heather Donohue

Service provided: Gift caricature

Service rating: Excellent

Additional Comment: We were very impressed with the quality of work that Bruce provided. Not only was the caricature amazing but the timely manner in which the entire process was completed in.
We would definitely recommend his work to anyone looking for great quality caricatures!

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!

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…!

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!

Pets are People Too!-Testimonial

We are often asked if we do pet portraits and the answer is of course yes. Most people when getting a pet portrait completed don’t want it to be the funny caricature that we would normally do for people, they want something more cute and memorable. We recently did one for a client that was digital, but also done in the old cross-hatching style that was part of my earlier work. The client loved it and below are a few comments about the project. We believe that pets are people too!

Comments from the client:

Name or Company: Sheldon Hayes

Service provided: Gift caricature

Service rating: Excellent

Additional Comment: Bruce did a great job of capturing the “look” of the pet from the pictures I provided – great work, fast turnaround and I’m very pleased with the outcome!
Thanks Bruce!

It was a terrific experience working with you, from start to finish. Thanks for being so responsive and wonderful to deal with, and for turning such an amazing artwork around so swiftly (the timeline was aggressive, and you got it done early)! I think our articling students are going to be absolutely thrilled. I just saw a proof at the printer and it looks spectacular!
