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.

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 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 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:

I will be passing on Bruce Outridge Productions information through our corporation and friends. Also, having the company back to our building for more events and other services.

Artist spreads colour all over corporate event!

It is very funny that some of the most colourful people you meet are at a place called The Colour Shoppe. What is The Colour Shoppe? The Colour Shoppe is a paint store located in Brantford Ontario Canada that offers painting supplies to clients. A big client base for the store are contractors and so every year they hold an event as a thank you. The people were very down to earth and we had a ton of fun laughing about the caricatures and banter between the attendees. I don’t think I have laughed that hard at a corporate event for a long time. Put colourful people in a room and you get a wonderful enjoyable event. Thank you to The Colour Shoppe for having me out to the event.

Here is what the customer had to say:

Name or Company: The Colour Shoppe Inc.

Service provided: Live caricature entertainment

Service rating: Excellent

Additional Comment: Bruce was not good. He was excellent! I have never had such an amazing addition to a corporate function. Not only was Bruce professional with his caricatures, he was also engaging and charismatic. My staff and customers were commending me on hiring Bruce for this event and I sadly could only take credit for contacting him, Bruce did the rest. People were laughing all night and showing one another their caricatures. It was by far the hit of our event. Thank you for such great service. I would definitely recommend Bruce to anyone looking for this services!

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.
