WSJ Hedcut Portraits of Dwayne Johnson and Johnny Depp

Dwayne Johnson / Johnny Depp

A couple of heavily promoted blockbuster-hopefuls opened over the Memorial Day weekend: Baywatch and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Frankly, I have zero interest in seeing either one of ’em, but I suspect they’ll both be huge hits, so good for them.

I had the opportunity to create “hedcut” portraits of the stars of both films in the past for The Wall Street Journal. When I drew Dwayne Johnson back in 2003 for a movie called The Rundown, he was still being billed professionally as “The Rock”. My portrait of Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow was from 2007’s Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.
