No one will ever confuse the staid Wall Street Journal with the work of Andy Warhol, but the newspaper’s hedcuts — those iconic ink illustrations made entirely of dots — of Daniel Radcliffe evoke the nostalgia of the artist’s famous Marilyn Monroe painting. The daily collected six of artist Randy Glass’ “Harry Potters” from its archives, and sewn together, they capture not only Radcliffe’s evolution from cherub-faced innocence to furrowed determination, but their own sublime aesthetic. (The only thing that hasn’t changed are his glasses.) Each drawing finely embodies the tone of its respective film, and the seventh and final portrait (right) rightfully stands alone. It’s the darkest of the set, the only one in which Radcliffe is depicted not looking at the “camera.” Well done, WSJ. Take a look at the Harry collage:
