The WSJ needs new Steve Jobs pic

steve jobs The poor man looks like he was stung by bees for crying out loud.

God, it must be frustrating as a formerly chubby public figure to work your butt off losing a bunch of weight only to have publications continue run pictures of you when you were fat. Granted, The Wall Street Journal likes to use artists’ renderings of public figures which must be more expensive than a photo, but I think it’s time to give that artist a ring.

If they need to save some dough, maybe call up illustrator Antony Hare (see below).

He seems to work fast.

Thanks to faithful Macenstein reader Camillo Miller for the tip.

    I don’t think he lost that weight deliberately – he looks ill nowadays to me.

    Also…chubby? You must be looking at him through anorexic eyes…the man was never chubby in his life.

    I agree with Jim, Steve Jobs was never chubby. He is leaner post cancer, although I don’t think he looks ill.

    Steve Jobs is a cancer survivor. I think this post about his weight or weight loss may be considered to be in bad taste.

    The art style used in the WSJ is called a HedCut, and it was originated by an amazing artist named Kevin Sprouls. Many artists since then have created works in this style for the WSJ. Each HedCut takes a lot of time because they are hand drawn. No computer is used.

    Steve has been an icon in the business world for decades and has had several HedCuts created of him.

    Anthony Hare’s work is amazing too. His work is strongly influenced by Al Hirshfield. I wonder if Anthony Hare uses a mac?

    It looks like they took a thumb and put a Steve Jobs tattoo on it!
