Born in Washington, D.C. and raised outside of Boston, Morin started drawing cartoons at age seven.  He attended Syracuse University and, fueled by social and political upheavals during the early 1970’s, he began publishing political cartoons in Syracuse University's The Daily Orange

 

In 2009, Morin began animating his political cartoons for the Miami Herald’s website, www.miamiherald.com/opinion.  He is the only editorial cartoonist to employ the traditional method of painstaking frame-by-frame animation drawing.  His animated cartoons have drawn praise from within the profession as well as from his audience of millions of readers.

 

Morin is the author of five books: Famous Cats, Jim Morin's Field Guide to Birds, and three collections of political cartoons: Line of Fire,  BUSHED!, and AMBUSHED: A Cartoon History of the Bush Administration (with Walter C. Clemens). 

 

His cartoons and oil paintings have been exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide. Most recently he had a solo exhibit at the Coral Springs Museum of Art. He is soon to exhibit at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art in Manhattan.
