Headshots from the WSJ

Here is an interesting exhibit from the Smithsonian that profiles the unique Head cuts from the Wall St. Journal and how they are created. Surprisingly, even in today’s digital world, these images are hand drawn by artists commissioned by the WSJ. What would be really cool would be an online application where you could submit an image of yourself, and it would be rendered in the same manner as the WSJ headshots.

I agree. I know there is an app out there that lets you submit your headshot and they turn it into a cartoon (don’t know the source, otherwise, I’d link to it – I think you could find it on micropersuasion if you look.) Since I’ve always wanted to be featured in the middle column of the WSJ, I’d much prefer the WSJ format and would even pay a few $$$ for that.
