Phil O - Oregon Caricature Artists

Phil O

Phil’s caricature sketching is perfect entertainment because it is fun to watch and cherished as a souvenir gift! Phil specializes in quick, ink-line, upbeat caricatures. He is a longtime Portland caricature artist, sketching at parties, weddings, picnics and at the local weekend craft market. He is a veteran caricature artist of San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf (1977-1987) and the Portland Saturday Market (1988-2013). He also works as a professional graphic designer, cartoon illustrator, and has a calligraphy art print business. He's a member of the Portland Society of Calligraphy.

For many years, he was best known for sketching fast profile gag caricatures with sport/hobby themes for large crowds. In recent years, Phil’s newer focus is sketching simpler, ink-brush pen style, front-view caricatures. Phil works well by himself, as well as with other local artists. Phil’s “fun-sketches” will make your event awesome!
