Marcus Sakoda - Digital Caricature Artist

Marcus is a digital caricature artist. He began drawing in the 3rd grade after seeing many of his family members drawing around him.

After high school, Marcus went to the Academy of Art University in San Francisco where he learned the fundamentals of drawing, painting, and illustration. Those traditional skills transferred very well to his digital paintings. He graduated with a BFA in Illustration.

In 2010 Marcus began to focus on Caricatures. Once again, he taught himself the art of caricature with every resource he could find online.

Marcus first attended the ISCA convention (Internation Society of Caricature Artists) in 2010. There he was awarded 1st place Best Portfolio and 1st place Best Studio piece. Other attendees were surprised by his photo realistic caricature renderings.

He attends ISCA every year and has yet to leave a convention without an award.
