The article deals with scientific research that covers the work of Riflemen graphic artists in satirical magazines of the Ukrainian Sich Riflemen (USR) Press Apartment. It is noted that the Press Apartment of the USR has become a center of creativity for talented Riflemen artists who worked on various printed projects of the Sich, among which a special place refers to the satirical press. These publications were created in the field and were of great importance for raising morale and positive mood in the Legion of Riflemen. Thanks to the artist of the Press Apartment, USR satirical magazines, filled with masterful caricatures and cartoons, have not only historical but also high artistic value. The work of illustrators in the humorous and satirical literature of the Sich Riflemen's Legion had a further influence on the development of Ukrainian printed graphics. The article examines the work of cartoonists O. Kurylas, O. Sorokhtei during their work in the press publications of the USR. An art analysis of caricatures and cartoons of relevant Sich artists was conducted, which helped to compare, describe and analyze graphic works. Peculiarities of artists' creative style, content of caricatures, artistic and technical means of execution are considered. It was found that the graphics of O. Kurylas are dynamic and allegorical, expressive in the transfer of characters, while O. Sorokhtei tends to statics in his works, processes images with a precise contour, gives portraits psychologism and sharp satire. It is emphasized that these artists have common creative features – in their satirical works use grotesqueness, expression of form and line in the transfer of characters. O. Kurylas and O. Sorokhtei have a western art education, which requires a high level of academic drawing. It was emphasized that the work of Sich artist was not limited to propaganda. In the works of cartoonists of Riflemen’s magazines there is a critique of the USR military command, ridicule of mistakes and shortcomings of Riflemen artists, cartoons on well-known people in the riflemen environment are shown.
