Wall Street Journal Hedcut of Ben Kingsley

Ben KingsleyThe new film, Operation Finale, opens this week and it stars two of my favorite actors – Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley. I haven’t had an opportunity to create a Wall Street Journal portrait (hedcut) of Oscar Isaac (yet), but I had to go way back into my files to find one that I’d done of Kingsley. It was featured alongside Joe Morgenstern’s review of a movie called Suspect Zero, and it opened exactly 14 years ago this very week.

Drawing hair can be really tedious, but in seeing this drawing after so many years, I’m sure that rendering his shiny noggin wasn’t a piece of cake either. Boy…put a pair of glasses on him and I could almost use this as my driver’s license photo.
