I SAW U

Dredged from the vault, I just rediscovered these portraits for the “I Saw U” column that used to run weekly in The Stranger. A society column about celebrities in town, back when we never had celebrities in town. They are a bit musty, suffer from uneven line weights and pre-vector polish, but they have a sincerity and brightness that I really enjoy.

I left them nameless here in case you’d like to guess, names below…

Sandra Bernhardt, Russel Crowe, Tom Cruise, Ellen DeGeneres, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kirsten Dunst, Elijah Wood, Brendan Frasier, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jude Law, Brad Pitt, Snoop Dog, Kate Moss, Steve Coogan, Hilary Swank, John Waters, Shelley Winters (!), Reese Witherspoon, Jenna Bush (!!), Yoko Ono
