Goofy Faces Training at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo

Robert Bauer - Friday, April 23, 2010

It's that time of year when we gear up our retail operations for our zoo locations throughout the midwest. This week I was in Cleveland training our new artists at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. All 5 new artists did a great job learning about retail caricatures in only 4 days. On Thursday, we gave them a chance to draw the public for free so we could see them in action. Although the weather was a bit chilly for drawing, they had a continuous crowd for over 2 hours. Zoo guests were very pleased with their work. Some of the guests were from Belgium. They were stranded in Cleveland due to the volcanic ash and smoke from Iceland. The zoo allowed them to visit for free and we drew several of them for free as well. It was fun showing them a good time while they enjoyed an extra few days in the U.S

Go Rochester Orioles!

The Rochester Orioles Federation Baseball Team held a fund-raising party with a silent auction at the Rochester Mills Beer Company on Saturday night to help raise money for the team. Robert was on hand to help raise cash for his son's team by drawing caricatures of the parents and guests. Everyone enjoyed the outing and Goofy Faces raised $100 for the team. Go Orioles!

Members of the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club held an event called the GYPC World Pub Crawl Friday night. Several rooms within the yacht club were themed after different countries.

Nora's 3rd Birthday

Robert Bauer - Sunday, March 21, 2010

Saturday morning, I had the pleasure of drawing caricatures at a breakfast birthday for Nora, age 3, pictured on the bottom right. Her family enjoyed their color caricatures and I had a great time hanging out with them for breakfast at Big Boy's way up north of Mt. Pleasant. Happy Birthday, Nora!

Caricatures at the DMCVB Annual Meeting & Tradeshow 2010

Robert Bauer - Wednesday, February 17, 2010


Today was the annual meeting and trade show for the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau held at the fabulous Westin Book Cadillac Hotel in downtown Detroit. After a 2-year absence, the DMCVB decided to include the trade show as part of the annual meeting.  Goofy Faces was on hand once again to delight attendees with caricatures before and after the meeting. Our caricature artists make an excellent addition to any convention or trade show. And they are available nationwide.

Valentine's Day Weekend at Otsego Club

Robert Bauer - Wednesday, February 17, 2010

I was invited to draw caricatures over Valentine's Day Weekend at the remarkable Otsego Club & Resort in Gaylord, Michigan. It's a fantastic place to get away, especially if you enjoy skiing or snow boarding. The views were spectacular and the food was great as well. The facilities are also top-notch. The U.S. Olympic Snowboarding team trained here!  Guests enjoyed being drawn all weekend long as well.

9th Annual UEP Vendor Showcase

Robert Bauer - Thursday, February 11, 2010

Wednesday afternoon was the 9th Annual Vendor Showcase for the University Event Planners of Michigan held at the Kensington Court in Ann Arbor. Goofy Faces was on hand as one of the new vendors showcasing their talents to attendees. Guests were not disappointed as our booth wound up staying open 30 minutes past the ending time in order to accommodate those who patiently waited to get their caricature drawn.  Hopefully, Goofy Faces will get to spend more out in Ann Arbor at some of their upcoming events!
