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. Be aware of cheap, photo filtered, digital copies.
I am a senior staff illustrator at the WSJ, one of only 5 illustrators in the world who create authentic hedcut portraits. This blog is an addition to my illustration website (www.nolinovak.com)
Hedcuts in color
A brand new section in the Wall Street Journal called Greater New York, launched a new era for hedcuts: color! Prefer the b&w version? Not to worry. They continue to appear in the rest of the paper. So, how about them apples?!
