Caricatures by Gary

For almost half a century, Gary from Caricatures by Gary has drawn memories for thousands of guests at the Arizona State Fair.

“I’ve been drawing caricatures at the State Fair since 1974 and I’ve loved every minute of it. My customers are always the best part. They come to my booth to create a memory and many of them come back year after year. They seem to enjoy it as much as I do!”

Why wait until October – how about a digital caricature of you and your cute pet right now?
