'ghur' back in Ghurilla
Butch the Caricature Artist, at Party Artist, performs a form of Ghuerilla Marketing: he creates live Personalized Souvenir Caricatures brandishing the event host’s name. Devoted customers as well as potential customers take away frame-able, gently exaggerated, bang on caricatures for their office walls. The loyalty of current customers is maintained, and new business from potential customers is all the more encouraged.
Butch has caricatured for companies and organizations like Canad Inn, Subway, Best Buy, Manitoba Lotteries Foundation, Global, BMO, Grand & Toy, CBIC, CKY-TV, Assiniboine Credit Union, the Universities of Winnipeg, the University of Manitoba, Tri-Star Electrical and many more.

It's the word caricaturist.
To avoid future embarrassment of MCs, DJs, and venerable colleagues, I have devised this infographic.
Butch creates personalized one of a kind Classic and Prestige caricatures from emailed photos.
