Hedcut = a newsroom abbreviation for "headline cut": a hand drawn, uniquely stylized pen and ink illustration, used only by the staff illustrators at The Wall Street Journal. Authentic WSJ stipples are never digitally generated.
I am a senior staff illustrator at the WSJ, one of only 5 illustrators creating authentic hedcut portraits.
WEIRD ANIMAL HEDCUTS
I enjoy drawing quirky subjects for the Wall Street Journal, like Denver Airport's creepy mustang sculpture and a funny, tongue wielding goat.
