    Does this type of drawing/art have a certain name?

    I was wondering if this type of art/drawing has a certain art term associated with it? It's not the best example in the world as I only spent a few minutes on it, my brother's the real artist in the family anyways. But I'm wanting a few of these types of drawings for some graphics on a website I am doing, a few people from the cast of the show. Thanks

    I don't know if it has a specific name, but there are all kinds of artists. Thats a bit more graphical and if its what you like to do then maybe you would look into a program like adobe illustrator or some other vector based program. I don't do that type of art very well, but my sister does and... we don't make a distinction between us which is the better artist... we're just both artists, just like you and your brother.

    I don't know what method you used to create this. Preferrably if you did it without any type of tracing or filters in a program then why don't you pursue it?

    *end seriousness*

    And yes, that type of art lends itself very well to stenciling, you could take it and make a stencil, then use it to paint a border of faces around the top of a kitchen wall. And maybe even a giant face stenciled on the kitchen floor... but only if you have really really sweaty armpits and its not your house. You get bonus points if the homeowners cry upon seeing it.

    I don't know the name of that kind of art, maybe some kind of vector-art-thing, dunno

    I have heard this style of art referred to as "high-contrast" since the object is to eliminate the mid-tones and define the form with only the hard shadows and light.

    In the old days, we called this "posterized" art. If it was more mechanical, without the little bumps and detail nuances, it was called "hard-edged." Big thing in the late sixties--early seventies. Find a book on period advertising from that area and you'll see a lot of examples...
