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. This blog is an addition to my illustration website (www.nolinovak.com)

This weekend marks the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. This is a hedcut portrait of Her Majesty, I made for the Wall Street Journal in 2005.
