An illustrator since his graduation from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Corbert Gauthier has received numerous awards from the Society of Illustrators, Print Regional Design Annual and Communication Arts Illustration Annual.
Corbert specializes in traditional oil painting techniques. He places a major emphasis on the drawing stage of each project and believes this foundation is a key element to any successful painting. Once the drawing is developed, he completes a monochromatic underpainting and then begins laying in color, gradually building to the finish with a combination of opaque and transparent applications of paint.
During his career he has worked for a wide variety of corporate, advertising and publishing clients. Corbert considers himself very fortunate to be able to make a living doing what he loves. He states that, “Digital technology is a wonderful thing but it has come at a great price to traditional illustration. I hope we never lose an appreciation for hand-done drawing and painting.”
