Jamie and Claire fan art

I don't normally think much of OUTLANDER fan art (much of it is, to put it politely, not even close to my mental image of what Jamie and Claire look like). But I found a picture this morning that is truly exceptional, and I can't resist sharing it with you.


This is supposed to be Jamie and Claire on their wedding day, of course. (If the clothing doesn't give that away, the cloth wrapped around their wrists surely ought to! <g>)

The artist's name is Lilly, and that's all I know about her. The picture was posted on Photobucket, here. Isn't this gorgeous?! Jamie's eyes are not exactly the way I pictured them, but that's a minor quibble, because I think the artist got everything else just right.

And you'll notice, along the left side of the portrait, that Diana Gabaldon has signed it! I didn't see this at first, but on a closer look, it's definitely Diana's signature.

This is why I pay attention to the information I get from Sitemeter about who's reading my blog. I happened to notice this morning that someone visited my blog yesterday via a link from a site I'd never heard of before, My Outlander Purgatory, and exploring that site, I stumbled across this picture of Jamie and Claire.

My Outlander Purgatory looks like a terrific blog, btw, with lots of good stuff for OUTLANDER fans. (Carol, if you're reading this, please drop me a comment!)

Hi Karen! Thanks so much for the My Outlander Purgatory mention! We love your site but we have to tiptoe around with one eye shut - because we haven't finished the series yet and are terrified of spoilers! I can't WAIT to dig in as soon as I'm finished. 1/3rd through The Fiery Cross! I'll keep you posted! Thanks again - Carol :)

Hi. I found your blog yesterday when I visited My Outlander Purgatory. Both sites are great, especially for an Outlander addict like me! Keep up the good work. Suzy

I really like the illustration. The only complaint I have is his eyes need to be slanted and his nose longer and sharper. Claire looks wonderful.

Love the illustration - but feel Jamie's nose should be longer. However, everything else is great!! How much more addicted could we all become...
