From Lady Megan K:  "I drew this the last year on St-Andrew's Day. I think it kinda looks like it could be Roger, but if it was coloured it might be Jamie."

From Lady Rebecca L:  "This is exactly how I picture Jamie (older Jamie). But I can't quite capture Claire the way I imagine her. Maybe because I don't really see her face clearly while I'm reading. It's more of an impression of her personality that I get from the books. Thanks for letting me share my drawings with you."

From Lady Katrin R:  "Hi! I was looking at your page and I was really impressed by the pics!!! It inspired me to draw a picture of the Jamie and Claire I have in my mind. It is the first one since years, so it is not the best one, but I love it very much!!! And I hope, you'll like it too."

From Lady Amanda:  "I have been working on a painting of Jamie for a few months off and on (during the school year it's difficult to find time) but now it's finished! I thought I'd let you guys know so that you could post it on your 'Outlandish Illustrations' section of the website. This is a fantastic series and it deserves to be paid homage! "

From Lady Ilona:  "I have recently discovered the Outlander books and have read all of them except Snow and Ashes. I am starting through for the second time. They are the most original and well conceived and written works I have read in a very long time! Diane's Jamie certainly conjures visions.... "

From Lady Hilary:  "I'm a confirmed Jamie addict as are many of my friends. Like many, I'm fascinated by what Our Man in Scotland looks like. I've mucked about and photoshopped a picture of to get an idea [first pic]. I stuck his head onto the photo of an actual early 18th century noble tartan outfit on display in the National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh. This is before the sewn kilt was invented in the very late 18th century (by an Englishman, no less), and includes the tartan trews, rather than breeches and hose. Plus a bonnet nicked from Bonnie Prince Charlie (sorry. He had the best one.) Then blurred a bit so that if you squint, it all sort of comes together [second pic]."

From Lady Deb:  "I've gotten into sculpting character dolls in 1:12 scale over the past couple of years, and a Jamie portrait was inevitable. He's in the wrong color tartan, but it's the only miniature pattern I had at hand when I finished him. I've searched all over and haven't been able to find clan Fraser tartan in miniature. I did manage to find a miniature red version of clan Malcolm, which I would imagine would suffice! So my next one will be dressed in all his "flaming red." He's made of polymer clay, and stands a little over 6 inches tall. He's currently standing on top of my computer at work. The first thing the office mates do when they see him is pick him up and peek under his kilt. When they're shocked and "surprised to find only Jamie" under there, I tell them "well YOU"RE the one who looked!" Yes, he's "regimental" and yes, he has all his parts! Just thought I'd share. "

From Lady Mererid:  "Hello there! I've been really bored tonight, so I thought I'd send you my little drawing of 'Jamie'! It's based on a picture I found of Gerard Butler (yum) in the 'dressed to kilt' fashion show. It's not the best I've ever drawn, but I enjoyed drawing it none the less!"

From Lady Melissa G:  "I had been looking for a drawing of Young Ian for a long time, and couldn't find any. So I decided to order a commission from an artist in Brazil. This is the drawing of Ian and Rollo that the artist, E.D. Siffert, made for me. I have the original at home, which is made in sepia lead on cream/yellowish paper. This image is a scanned copy that the artist will use for her webpage. Please note that the work is copyrighted, and that I'm not the owner--the artist is, so copies are not allowed."

From Lady Saw2256:  "I did a little photomanipulation of a Jamie. The background is a cottage in Scotland behind some standing stones and the model comes from a romance book cover. The eyes belong to Jason Lewis, nose to Gerard Butler and mouth to Gabriel Aubry. I figured, if we can't find the perfect Jamie, why not engineer one?"

From Lady Sjouwke:  "In February I ordered from Angelique Hoekstra of Angel's Little Ones in Groningen (NL) a scale 1:12 doll (= circa 15 cm tall). Angelique is a real artist on miniature dolls. After months of searching on dollhouse fairs and on internet for the doll I wanted, I ordered it from her.What kind of doll did I long for? James Alexander Malcolm McKenzie Fraser, or: Jamie Fraser. From the books of Diana Gabaldon. To live in Fraser's Ridge, that I am making in 1:12 scale."

From Lady SaraL:  "These are some dolls I made from eLouai's Candybar Doll Maker. Of course they didn't have 18th century clothes, so I did the best I could with what was shown, cutting, pasting, editing in Photoshop. I even made Jamie a little sporran! "

From Mother Hildegarde in Germany:  "I tried to imagine how Jack Randall may look. As I saw the film "Titanic" yesterday, I saw Billy Zane for the first time and in my opinion he has a really devious face, but he's looking really good. So he's the perfect Jack Randall, I think. I've taken one of his photographs I found on the WWW, and a painting (it's Oxford, I guess) and put them together in Photoshop. The dress is from another website (ancient customes tailor)."

From Lady Chiara in Italy:  "I'm not that good in drawing - I had to copy the muscles from an underwear advertisement- but I hope you'll like the picture of my own Jamie. I've tried to do a full-body paint, but clothes are difficult to draw correctly, and the naked version wasn't anatomically correct- hands too small, I guess. *VBG* So, this is the half-body version of my Jamie. Still not as bonny as in my mind... "

After having looked at the drawings I decided to try to draw Jamie, too. In this e-mail I will send you my picture, and I hope you will post it, like the other ones. I know it is not the best, because after half an hour I threw away my pencil...you can't express what is really in your mind, it is always the same... but nevertheless, I would be very pleased if "my jamie" was shown on this page, too.

From Lady Zion:  "Hum, this is my vision of Fergus (Chris Klein is the model) but I drew, basing him especially on DG's description... ( dark, frail, little eyes, slender lips, aquiline nose ect.. ) and this is my result... I drew him with a St Dismas medallion. I think this is Fergus' symbol. This is the same procedure with Jamie (no need description I thinks??) I drew together because they are my favourite characters, and it's a pleasure to have a representation of them. I hope you'll like it. "

From Lady Nadine from Germany:  "Diana Gabaldon said in her books that a Highlander in his kilt is an impressive sight - this inspired me to do this picture of Jamie. I wanted to see what a Highlander in his kilt really looks like! I did a lot of research before making this pic. For example, I tried to apply the original "Fraser of Lovat" tartan pattern to his plaid. There is also a wallpaper of it - you can find it here on my website at www.whitelady.de."

From Lady Sheila:  "Since reading the Outlander series, my friends and I have all been in search of the perfect Jamie. Still no luck!

The books are phenomenal - never have I experienced such rich characters in print before."

From Lady Kerry:  "Hi. My name is Kerry. I am new to the LOL website, but an old "captive" of the outlander books. I live just outside of Ottawa, Canada, but had the most fortunate, fateful luck to have lived in Texas (Dallas) area for a year while my husband was transferred there. Being 2000 miles away from home, and not knowing a soul, I was miserable indeed. Then I met my next door neighbour, became fast friends, being that out spirits knew each other forever, and she intoduced me to Outlander . Though not a cure, Jamie helped me forget about all my family and friends being so far away. I immensely enjoyed the book, but then got incredibly busy as we were moving back to Canada and me with a wee bairn on the way, I only muddled my way through the first 1/3 of Dragonfly. My neighbour gave me a gift, a copy of Outlander....autographed by Herself. She had travelled all the way to Houston and back and presented me with this gift. I was touched, and very happy to receive it. After nearly a year back home , I picked up Dragonfly again and gave it the attention it deserved. Now completely swept away, I read the rest and have just recently finished Fiery Cross , and am now perusing "companion". What I thought was simply a nice gift, is now one of my most treasured possesions. That autographed copy is a cherished link to the amazing series of novels that has swept me away, when I swore "I don't read romance" (having since learned the absurdity of even suggesting DG in that substandard category) and more importantly is a lasting tangible memory of an amazing friend who helped me feel a little more at home, so far away. I miss her very much, and thank her for prescribing my first dose of outlander---addiction be damned!! So I would like to dedicate this illustration, my mind's eye of Jamie and Claire, to her. Christie Mack, this is for you with all my heartfelt thanks!!!"

From Lady Carole:  "[These] are a friend of mine's drawings (I could only dream of drawing like that). She has given me permission to post them, and they are posted on the web at a different site, but I thought you all would appreciate them as well. Her name is Lisa Rourke and the attached drawing is actually her rendition of a completely different fictional character, but it matched my vision of Jamie so well, I had to share."

From Lady Brianna:  "I did this using Adobe Photoshop, and you can completely tell that the whole thing was done while reading it [Outlander], because every time I got to another little detail, I'd throw it in the picture (um, like clan tartans and badges??!!)."

From Lady SylviaA, in the UK:  "It's been at least 10-15 years since I last attempted drawing a face (I normally do portraits of cats and dogs), but I've been working on this for 6 months - inspired by the BOOKS - and I think it's turned out ok, considering I'm a bit rusty! There's a faint line separating the pic, that's how it turned out after the scan (DS Mike had to scan it in 2 sections), but that's the fault of the scanner! Not too noticeable though. It would be great if you put it up on the boards and maybe it'll spur all those other LOL artists to get going with the paints!"
