I am the youngest son of caricature artist Gary Drysdale. Growing up with a father who worked as a full-time Caricature Artist was interesting and never without an adventure... I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity of watching him work at fairs and different retail spots around the country. Those experiences provided a good foundation from which to build my own career as an artist.
I began doing retail caricatures back in 2005 sitting in the lobby of a busy restaurant in downtown Phoenix. Working in a retail environment forced me to get out of my shell and learn how to talk to people as I drew them. It also allowed me the opportunity to develop my own style while making good money. Eventually I branched out into the corporate world and started working with a variety of different party & event planners.
In 2011 I started my own business, Phoenix Caricature Company, with the goal of providing top quality artists for parties and events. That same year I also began pursuing my Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design from The Art Institute. I graduated from the Art Institute of Phoenix in 2014.
I also joined ISCA in 2014 and attended my first convention in Reno. I had a great time and met some amazing artists that not only inspired me to do better, but also motivated me to do more with my art and my business.
