Anthony Colaizzi

Anthony is the in-house artist with Congregation Beth Shalom, serving as Communications and Design Manager since 2016. In his time here, Anthony has contributed his aesthetic for bold colors, solid graphics, and quality production to nearly every sign, brochure, and image at Beth Shalom. You’ll see great examples of Anthony’s creativity in the Palkovtiz’s lobby showcase, quarterly Mishpachtenu, and Beth Shalom’s website.

He is also an accomplished caricature artist within the Pittsburgh area under the name Cartoon Anth ( and is a member of the Pittsburgh Society of Illustrators. You’ll find him bringing whimsy and memories to children and adults of all ages at various events. When not here at Beth Shalom, Anthony is in his own world at home. From cooking new recipes for hearty dinners and desserts, to pursuing his passion for illustration, or wrangling his two dogs and two cats with his partner MJ, life is anything but boring.
