Jim Morin was born in Washington D.C., and grew up outside of Boston. He started drawing cartoons when he was 7 and later, during studies at Syracuse University, merged his interest in politics with cartooning. He came to The Miami Herald in 1978. The Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist says that the most important requirement of "‘editorial'' cartoons is that the drawing take a point of view, humorous or not. Over the years, he has drawn scathing cartoons of both Democrats and Republicans. All are considered fair game.
