The Wall Street Journal is known world-wide for their unique approach to their illustrations featured in their publications. Randy Glass is the man behind these illustrations and started freelancing for the WSJ in 1998. As you might be aware, he has built up quite a collection of illustrations over the years. These are 99 inspiring hedcuts that will make you admire the attention to detail. “These iconic drawings use a variation of the traditional stipple method of many small dots of varied sizes in conjunction with minimal line usage.” -Randy Glass

The phonetic spelling of “hed” comes from newspapers use of that term for “headline”.
Imagine having some flyer printing done. It should look amazing as flyers don’t you think? Let’s check out these great illustrations. They are available on the Behance Network as well.

One Lonely Comment

  1. Randy Glass’s illustrations demonstrate a unique style which is not seen very often in publications especially one as big as the Wall Street Journal. I like the stipple effect used in his illustrations and how he has used spacing and sizing to show shading and to emphasize details within the portrait. I think my favourite is the Morgan Freeman portrait, the detail and combination of styles is fantastic!
