Illustration, Cartooning and Graphic Design

James CloutierMy creative pursuits range all over the map, from serious painting and drawing to humorous cartoon books. When I paint, I prefer portraits in watercolor and landscapes in acrylic or oils. Drawing consists of working in graphite doing larger than life portraits or sketching cartoons and caricatures with fine point marker pens. I have an MFA degree in photography but currently use that medium primarily for making images for reference purposes.
