Stipple portrait of Kang-ho Song (송강호).









Here I have drawn hedcut portrait of the most admirable south korean actor Kang-ho Song (송강호).


First time I saw him in 'Memories of Murder' (Salinui chueok, 살인의 추억), and this is still my favorite film with this actor though since that time I've seen 'Thirst', 'Antarctic Journal', 'Host', 'Age of shadow' and other movie.

I suppose I should see 'Attorney', Song Kang-ho looks really unusual in his formal suit with that haircut a la lawyer from the late 70s.

Top post: hedcut for your business.

I created this stipple portrait for one company about a year ago. Few more portraits I have drawn for this firm later.

Corporate clients choose hedcuts to represent their staff on web and information catalogues for different reasons.
One and main reason is that engraving technique looks traditional, stable, old-fachioned in a good way and at the same time brings the feeling of timeless.

Another reason is technical: woodcut images still look crisp and clear even in a very small size whether it is printed or web page.
