Producing WSJ-Style Hedcuts

Brejcha hedcutI’ve been working on a new design for the Thomas More Society website—this is the original Thomas More law firm that defended my father, Joe Scheidler in the landmark NOW v. Scheidler RICO suit.

It remains to be seen if I can meet my deadlines and actually see the new design published, but meanwhile I want to share a discovery.

For the TMS homepage I wanted to use a Wall Street Journal style “hedcut” of Tom Brejcha, the lead attorney at TMS—and the guy I’ve got on speed dial when I have to deal with police out on the street protesting abortion.

I couldn’t find any quick instructions on how to do this (the hedcuts made famous by the WSJ are hand drawn—good for them!). So I threw something together myself using Corel PhotoPaint. Should be easy to do with PhotoShop too.
