Silhouette art is such a creative and delicate form of art, and it harkens to my childhood. In fact, I wonder where the framed silhouettes of my siblings are that used to be on a wall at my parents.
Karl Johnson is a 3rd generation silhouette artist. I was watching him cutting with his entire arm (and shoulders) a silhouette of my child faster than I could cut out a basic paper heart (not kidding). http://www.mygreenlake.com/2011/11/silhouette-artist-karl-johnson/
