Al Hirschfeld; his daughter was named Nina. In most of his illustrations, he would hide her name inside and I remember always looking for the "Nina" whenever coming upon them. Sweet.

Intriguing portraits created without faces

Henrietta Harris is an artist and illustrator from New Zealand who has created a series of seemingly unfinished portraits. Each drawing is a portrait with the subjects face missing — instead, the crisp black and white images are focused on fine lines and clean shapes. The hair on the subjects is incredibly detailed but the facial area of the image is completely blank. For more of her work, check out Harris’ website.
