Celebrity Hedcuts by Randy Glass
Love the style of these unique illustrations by LA-based portrait artist Randy Glass.
“Hedcut is a term referring to a style of portraiture most often associated with The Wall Street Journal. These iconic drawings use a variation of the traditional stipple method of many small dots of varied sizes in conjunction with minimal line. They are designed to emulate the look of woodcuts from old-style newspapers and engravings on certificates and currency. The phonetic spelling of ‘hed’ comes from newspapers use of that term for ‘headline’.”Art Illustration Posted on June 6, 2012
