Illustrated Mormons



by Scott Heffernan (bio)

Modern Day Prophets: Gordon B. Hinckley, Spencer W. Kimball, David O. McKay, Thomas S. Monson.

You may recognize this style of illustration. It was developed by visual artist Julian Opie, and made famous when British band Blur asked him to design the cover of their album, Blur: The Best Of.


I'm a fan of Julian Opie's work so I thought it would be fun to render some prominent Mormon personalities in his distinct minimalist style.

Cool Mormon Women: Carol Lynn Pearson, Chieko Okazaki, Gladys Knight, Joanna Brooks.

Mormon Politicians: Mitt Romney, Jon Huntsman Jr., Harry Reid, Orrin Hatch.

So far I've completed such clusters as Modern Day Prophets, Cool Mormon Women, and Mormon Politicians. I have some other batches in the works that I hope to release in the next few weeks. Here is a sneak peek.


Clustered as well as a few individual portraits available here.
