Bruce was not only a fantastic artist, but a humble human. You made my daughter's birthday party so memorable with the personalized drawings that made everyone smile. All I know is that this was one of the best decisions I made on hiring such a wonderful, caring person. Thank you once again for all the great work and laughs.

As an event planner or person planning an event you want to know that the person you hire is a professional entertainer. That includes not only good artistic talent but someone who can get along with people, dress appropriate for an event and comes ready with all of the supplies required to make sure the event is a success. That is what you can expect from Bruce Outridge Productions. Bruce is a regular draw at trade shows, weddings, and even television shows. In 2012 he was featured on an episode of "Dinner Party Wars" drawing caricatures for guest and even the hosts. He has been known to draw and caricature everything from dogs to cars and trucks.
The reason Bruce is so well liked is his pleasant personality, his excellent drawing skills, and the professionalism he and his team offers in dealing with clients. He is in fact one of the few caricature artists that offer custom stationary and protective sleeves for retail clients purchasing the wedding or corporate packages to make sure the event is a great success. Next time you are at an event whether it is a wedding, dog show, truck show, car show, birthday party, Bar Mitzvah, or the company barbecue and you see Bruce make sure you go and say hello. If there is one thing he enjoys, it is meeting new people. Please visit the Bruce Outridge Productions website for samples videos, testimonials, and information on other services offered through the business.

Additional Booking Notes
Bruce brings most of the equipment required for his performance. If you have two to three chairs without arms that would be all that is required. If the event will be dark or low light such as at a wedding please make sure the performance area is near a hydro outlet. Bruce has his own lights and chords. No tables are required.
Three chairs and a table are required. The location of the setup will need to be near a hydro plug for equipment. Monitors, printers, and equipment will be brought by Bruce to the event. It is best to call for digital events to make sure specific requirements are addressed.
I draw roughly 15-20 black and white heads per hour. I take a 5-10 minute break every two hours for events over two hours in length.

Bruce was excellent throughout the whole celebration and I was completely satisfied with the work he did. I was pleased with how friendly and interactive Bruce was with everyone. Having him there definitely added to our day. Thanks again!
Bruce was amazing from start to finish. He was at our daughter's first birthday party and kept all our guests happy and in good spirits throughout their drawing experience. We got nothing but good feedback from our guests and are sure we will use him again in the future.
Bruce was hired to attend my husbands 50th birthday celebration and create a caricature sketch of all of our guests. We were all impressed with Bruce's good nature and skill as an artist. Bruce was able to capture each of the 16 guests personality in a very short time and left us with a wonderful keepsake of a great evening.
Awesome Job! Bruce it was a honour meeting you and having you at our party was a blast. Wouldn’t hesitate to call you again for our next party.Thank you
Bruce thank you so much for everything! The live caricature entertainment was a huge hit at our wedding! We appreciated your professionalism and courteousness! Thanks so much again!
