Gus moved to the Catskill Region in upper New York State in 1971 and operated his commercial art and design business in those beautiful mountains for the next twenty years. He attended NYU night courses at the New Paltz Campus and in 1984, became a State Certified Vocational Commercial Arts Instructor, Level II.
During those years, Gus was also the house caricaturist at the world-famous Concord Hotel in Kiamesha. His caricatures on paper and on Tee-shirts can be found in countries all over the world.
