As a young lad Ted voraciously traced newspaper comics and political cartoons and devoured Mad magazine. At age 15 he “turned pro” with the NHL’s Vancouver Canucks hockey team, as a cartoonist, not as a player. He and his hockey caricatures were featured coast-to-coast at intermission on Hockey Night In Canada.
Jobs began to roll in and it was off to College to study Advertising Art/Graphic Design and Illustration. Upon graduation he worked in Advertising until Expo ‘86 in Vancouver when he discovered the Special Events Industry, and they him, in a big way.
He formed his own Cartoon and Caricature Company and has since drawn thousands and thousands of smiling faces from all over the globe for some of the world’s biggest companies…thanks to the process which has always been to give people something great for their wall…physical and/or digital.
Black and White MARKER SPEED CARICATURES – Are best if you have a large group at your event and want to move a lot of people through quickly and are great for fans of classic theme park style Caricature: big head/little body/fun gag situation or for groups that want a hand done original piece of artwork created right in front of their eyes, to take away and frame.
Full Colour DIGITAL CARICATURES – This is the WOW factor! Jaw Dropping Full Colour Leading Edge Technology and it is best for a High Tech and/or sophisticated crowd who expect the latest in entertainment. Most groups have never seen Digital Caricature or know how to do it and are fascinated by being let in on the creative process as drawings are created on a Wacom tablet and displayed on a High Definition Flatscreen Display. Since the drawings are digital files they are perfect for Social Media sharing and Tech Productions. Given a print at the event, guests can also download their file and post and print it as they please.
