The Bax Illustration Team

Brian Bax , A Caricature artist in St. Louis

Brian Bax


Owner - St. Louis Caricature Artist

Brian started drawing caricatures in 2006 while working at Six Flag in St. Louis, MO. The booth was owned by Tom Richmond who is an illustrator for Mad Magazine. Brian found that standards for quality and organization were lacking among entertainment agencies. Because of this, he had a goal in mind to create a uniformly talented group of caricature artists. In addition, he wanted to simplify the process for event planners nationwide.
