Wall Street Journal hedcut of Patrick Stewart

The very first Wall Street Journal hedcut I ever created for Joe Morgenstern’s weekly film review column was of #PatrickStewart as Professor Charles Xavier for the first “X-Men” film in 2000. I won’t burn your eyes with that first horrible effort…let’s just say I was relatively new to this new stippling technique that had become iconic for the Journal.

3 years and about 150 hedcuts later, I had another opportunity to try my hand at Mr. Stewart’s mug – this time for “X-Men 2“. This one doesn’t embarrass, so here it is as the newest film “#X-Men:FirstClass” opens nationwide today!
