Kids change so fast and one unique way to capture how they look throughout the years is with a silhouette cut out. This week, renowned silhouette artist Karl Johnson will be at Pink Olive doing just that. Karl, a 3rd generation silhouette artist, has created silhouettes for thousands of people including celebrities and their children. Each silhouette is cut out by freehand (that means no pencil cheating?) where Karl looks at a subject’s profile and then cuts their profile out of black paper. Every silhouette is an original, one of a kind work of art, signed by the artist. His silhouettes have been featured in several consumer publications and in Black Swan with Natalie Portman.
We are giving away one silhouette portrait (a $25 value) by Karl at Pink Olive to one local A Child Grows reader. To enter, leave a comment telling us who you want a silhouette portrait of and why. This contest will end on Friday, September 9th, 2011 at 9:00am. I will use random.org to select the winner who I will contact via email and note in this post’s comment section. Also, please only enter if you can make the event at Pink Olive on Saturday, September, 10th! (P.S.- you can enter multiple times!)
