Sihouette cutting is an extremely rare art form these days, but one man is still practicing, or rather, mastering, the all but lost form of portraiture. Master scissor artist Karl Johnson cuts each vintage-inspired silhouette entirely by hand. He simply looks at the person’s profile, either in person or in a photo, and starts cutting the exact likeness out of black paper – sort of like Edward Scissorhands, but less threatening and pale.  

The SoCal artist will be on the east coast at baby store Babesta Cribz in NYC from 10am-5pm on September 11th. Stop by and get cut.

It’ll be the kind of profiling that’s actually encouraged on 9/11.
