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!

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.

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.

Customer services starts with the first point of contact!-Client Testimonial

People think I am over the top about looking professional whenever possible. That doesn’t mean we don’t screw up like everyone else, but we do our best to be professional from the first point of contact right through to the end of the project or event. Many times the feedback is about the event itself but as you will read in the testimonial below the client was just as impressed with the professionalism right up front. The event was a great night and the guests had a great time based on the feedback. Feedback like this can help you want to maintain a level of service above your competition. Thank you Mariana and thank you for the kind words.

Client Review
I booked Bruce for my wedding on October 1st 2016. Bruce was fantastic! Every single guest loved him and people couldn’t get enough! He smiled through every single drawing and was so personable with everyone! The kids were so excited and everyone kept giving us compliments about him and how much they loved him! We loved our personal photo he drew just for us and he was super kind and made another one on the day of for us. He even stayed at the end of the night to do a special one for the best man! He was worth every penny! Couldn’t recommend him enough!

Caricature Artist in the Line of Duty-Client Testimonial

I have seen many weddings where the guests were having too much fun. Not often do I have to rescue a guest from themselves. I was drawing at a wedding the other night when a guest got a little too tipsy and fell while trying to have cigarette. it was lucky I happened to be standing outside getting some air. everything turned out well for the evening and the wedding was a night to remember. I might have to add “Safety Supervisor” to my list of duties for events. Thanks to Elyse and Sammy for having me out to draw their guests.

Service rating: Excellent

Additional Comment: Bruce is AWESOME!! We were married Friday Oct.14 and it couldn’t have been better! Bruce did an amazing job on the caricatures and was a HUGE hit with our guests! EVERYONE loved how friendly and funny he is. He even rescued one of our guests that maybe had “too much fun” and toppled over outside! He is the sweetest guy and the selfies he sent us of everyone and their caricature were perfect!! A few of our guests are already going to book him for something and we are all STILL talking about him! If you’re thinking about booking Bruce, or trying to find something original and entertaining for an event or party, stop thinking about it and book Bruce, there’s no chance you’ll be disappointed!! We love you Bruce and thanks for THE BEST night!!

Sales was the name of the game at this event!-Testimonial

Okay so I drew at a corporate event the other day for their team. The company name I thought was for a transmission company, it turns out they were a paper company. Well I have never been the focus of so many Bruce with papersales people at an event. Every department was asking me what type of paper artists use, where do I buy it and more. They even gave me this gift to try and see if I like it so I can order from them. Too funny, but nonetheless a great event. They were awesome people and very easy to work with. I look forward to working for them again sometime, heck I might event buy some paper!

Not every airport trip gets you on a plane!-Testimonial

When most people go to the airport they are taking off to go somewhere or meet someone. Hopefully it is on a beautiful vacation or business trip to increase profits. I recently was called to the airport for a corporate

Toronto Pearson

event. I love vacations and always wanted to just arrive and book a plane to the destination of my choice. It was tempting to try it, but at the end of the day I was there to draw for a corporate party so I will consider it a business trip. The questions such as where would I be drawing, on a plane, the ground crew, the passengers all came to mind? At the end of the day I was there to draw a small team that provided the customer service for the airport. Even though it was a rainy day at the airport the team had a great lunch event. Maybe next time I will get on the plane.

Here is what they had to say about the event:
