Also known as "The Toon Guy", Guy Staats is an Atlanta based cartoonist/caricaturist/illustrator. He earned his degree in Commercial Art at The University of Akron(Ohio) in 1983, and broke into professional caricature later that same year. Guy first spent several seasons at the Cedar Point theme park in Sandusky, Ohio. A move to Georgia followed in 1985, where Guy trained and supervised other artists at Six Flags Over Georgia, before launching his own business.

Guy is FAST, hilariously accurate, and can draw in a variety of styles and types of caricature depending on your needs. His caricatures capture the personality and look of the subject perfectly.

Equally at home at parties , festivals, or at business events, his corporate clients over the years have included UPS, Coldwell Banker, The Home Depot, Hardee's, Minolta, iHealth Technologies, Carter's/Oshkosh B'Gosh, Electrolux, and Edward Jones Investments. In addition to performing indoors, Guy owns a 10' by 10' portable gazebo, comfortable exterior chairs and can work any outdoor event.

Warm, entertaining, and humorous, The Toon Guy exhibits a unique ability to connect to an audience and the people he draws. As the father of a developmentally delayed child, he often performs volunteer caricature/portrait sessions for those with learning disabilities.

Guy lives in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia with his wife, Serena, and their two daughters.
