WSJ Hedcuts, aka Stipple Drawings
Posted by Gordon Smith

See how they are done. Or read the blog of one of the artists, who did this ...

If you like this hedcut, you might be interested in Noli Novak's post about it.

For some reason, I have always thought it would be cool to have one of those made of me, but I can't see that ever happening. Unless I commit a massive financial fraud. And I am just not interested enough in money to do that.

So this post got me wondering ... is this a stipple drawing?


Or is pointillism something distinctive? Debate. Or just consult Wikipedia, which says that stippling "is similar to—but distinct from—pointillism, which uses dots of different colours to simulate blended colours."
