Rufus Z - Utah Caricature Artists

Rufus Z

Rufus (a.k.a. “Rufusman”) is a freelance artist who has been drawing caricatures professionally since 2013 at private and corporate events. His traditional and digital artwork for film, animation, and theatre spans across a global list of clients including Netflix, Prince Ea, City Kids, the PGA Tour, Wells Fargo, and Hewlett Packard. Rufus graduated with a Bachelor’s of Fine Art from Utah State University and founded his own publishing company, Yonder Comics, writing and drawing the webcomic COSMOKNIGHT.

Rufus enjoys every opportunity to not only draw faces, but also to connect with people and their unique stories. He loves to create customized likenesses that capture the spirit of each of his patrons, and he loves a good challenge, be it wacky poses, pets, themes, and just about anything else (though he will keep it PG - c’mon, think of the kids!). Rufus also draws commissions for more customized requests, such as logo designs, covers, and concept art.
