Gus S - Florida Caricature Artists

Gus S

Gus started a commercial art business in Manhattan (Greenwich Village) around 1962. His specialty was custom comics and cartooning. He began doing caricature work in hotels around 1980 after moving out of the city with his family to Catskill Mountains area, New York State. At different times over the next ten years, he worked many of the famous hotels in that area. The Thayer at West Point Military Academy, The Pines, The Nevele, The Granit, Pine Grove, The Concord and Kutchers to name a few. He was also booked for corporate gigs through two local agencies.


 Plus, during part of that time, he had a weekly newspaper feature called "World of Winners" in the Newburgh Evening News which presented caricatures of local business personalities (6 panels per week) and a little flattering write-up about each one. Of course, they paid to be in the strip. He moved to Florida in 1991 and has been doing mostly party gigs and corporate events down here; one cruise ship, The Europa Star, out of Ft. Myers Beach for a season and too many bars & restaurants to list. All of these experiences and more make Gus a great entertainer for your event.
