Stippled

by alyson

Doug wanted some uniformity on the “people” section of our company website. After trying to digitally change portraits into stipples using Photoshop, he decided to commission the real deal; they just didn’t look quite the same when done digitally. He wanted the artist that does the iconic stipple portraits for the Wall Street Journal. He found her: Noli Novak (just to be clear she’s not the only one that does the stipples for the WSJ, but she’s one of the main artists). She was covered in an article on NPR awhile back and they just interviewed her again for another upcoming article.

She’s completed stipple portraits for everyone at our office. Mine was just finished and I am really excited. There are some things computers just can’t recreate.
