Court J - California Digital Caricature Artists

Court J

Court began drawing caricatures live in theme parks and private events in 1996. He has a B.A. in Studio Art from the University of California, San Diego. In addition to his freelance work as a live entertainer and commercial illustrator, he often teaches courses in portraits, caricatures, digital painting and facial anatomy at a private San Diego art school. He is a Master member of the International Society of Caricature Artists (ISCA). He was named Caricature Artist of the Year in 2005 and more recently was named Master Caricature Artist of the Year in 2011. Getting into live digital caricatures around 2009 was a natural transition for Court, because of his background in live caricature drawing and digital painting at a professional level.
