I can’t believe it’s been 14 years since Disney/Pixar released The Incredibles!
No one could possibly enjoy Pixar movies more than I do…I just love ’em! I usually try to catch them opening weekend and I’ve seen most more than once.
With its sequel, Incredibles 2, coming to theaters this Friday, I thought I’d share these two hedcuts from the original film that I drew for The Wall Street Journal back in 2004. Folks don’t usually associate the Journal’s iconic stipple portraits with non-human characters (although I’ve drawn a few politicians that I could argue were less human than those from most animated films). I created the drawing of Mr. Incredible / Bob Parr to accompany film critic Joe Morgenstern’s original glowing review. Then at year’s end, when Joe’s column featured his top ten movies of the year, The Incredibles was selected as his number one film – calling for a second hedcut – this time of its leading lady, Elastigirl / Helen Parr.
