Make Your Wedding Unique with a Caricature Artist-Client Testimonial

I find as I work more weddings that they have become more of a competition as to who can have the best wedding. Having more stuff doesn’t make your wedding the best, it’s having the right stuff! The nice thing about having a caricature artist is the fact that you have someone live entertaining your guests and it comes with a unique keepsake that you will not be able to find anywhere else. I am at a wedding every weekend and the Bride’s comments below are common after the event. Congratulations to Lindsey and Andrew and all the best for the future.

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.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Caricature Artist Takes Client’s Breath Away at Canada Day Event-Client Testimonial

As we just passed our Canada Day weekend, parties across the Country were at an all time high. Many caricature artists are busy over the North American Birthday weekend and I was no different. I had a great time drawing for a customer at their Canada Day Party. I always go to events with the mindset that I want to have as good a time as the guests while remaining professional. It seems to be working as the client was so happy he was at a loss for words. Apparently being me is starting to pay off. Lol!

Here is what the client had to say:

Name or Company: Paul Douglas

Service provided: Live caricature entertainment

How was your booking experience?: Excellent

How was your project/event experience?: Excellent

Additional Comment: Bruce was just great, hard to describe. He is friendly, jovial with a quick with wit and always smiling. We had so much fun watching him draw…each and every person who received a caricature was thrilled…..too bad that he couldn’t have stayed for the entire evening!
Bruce, thanks so much for helping to make our Canada Day party such a success. Next to the fireworks you were the star of the show!
Warmest Regards,
Paul & Roz

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.

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!
