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.
MATISYAHUdid this to you?!
As Jewish reggae star Matisyahu shocks fans with his new look, I remember how much fun I had drawing his likeness for the TV promos of MTV's "Define Yourself" series.
