He attended Ringling School of Art and Art Center College of Design, supplementing his tuition by drawing five-minute portraits of people at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World &hellip; a surprisingly valuable education in discipline and patience.</p> <p>Randy began freelancing as an illustrator in the mid-'80s, quickly establishing a strong reputation for highly detailed representational drawing and painting. Although adept at working in color, he gravitated toward and has always preferred a simple black and white palette. He is a master of the graphic technique known as &ldquo;stipple&rdquo; &ndash; the process of marking a surface with numerous small dots to create an image. It&rsquo;s a style favored by print media, where paper quality can adversely affect the reproduction of an image, and by its very nature, it&rsquo;s ideal for Web usage.</p> <p>Perhaps best known commercially as a portrait artist, Randy has an exceptional aptitude for capturing his subject&rsquo;s character and essence with carefully nuanced precision. This, combined with his stippling expertise, made him a perfect match for the Wall Street Journal&rsquo;s iconic portraits known as &ldquo;hedcuts&rdquo;; he&rsquo;s created several hundred of them since 1998.</p> <p>Over the years, Randy has received recognition by The Society of Illustrators, American Illustration, Communication Arts, The Art Director&rsquo;s Club, and Illustration West.</p> <p>Randy currently lives in Southern California.</p> <p><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif"><a href="http://www.behance.net/randyglass">Portfolio also available on the Behance network featuring Randy's portraits - stipple, watercolor, hedcuts, corporate, food, commercial.</a></font><br /> <br /></p> </td> </tr> </table> </body>
