Anthony hired him for wife Jennifer Lopez's 40th birthday bash and now
he's coming to Cupcake! Master scissor artist Karl Johnson will be at
Cupcake Santa Rosa on Thursday, August 9th and Cupcake Healdsburg on
Friday, August 10th to sit and cut your favorite little one's precious
silhouette. Karl is a third generation silhouette artist and one of the
very few who still practice this form of portraiture art.
And not only is he a celeb fave, but his work has also been featured in numerous national publications such as InStyle, Martha Stewart Wedding, People Stylewatch, Parenting Magazine, Elle Decor, USA Today, Elegant Bride Magazine, Traditional Home Magazine, Country Home Magazine, Domino Magazine, Romantic Home and Nickelodean Magazine, & Ladies Home Journal. Karl was commissioned to do a series of life size silhouette portraits which were featured in the Kip's Bay Designer Show house in NYC. Karl's work has also been featured on several tv shows & movies and was recently commissioned by the Hong Kong Disney Park to create all of the silhouette portraits to be displayed in the silhouette studio on Main Street. Wow! Now that's a lot of scissor time!!
Not familiar with the art of the silhouette portrait? Long before the camera was invented, if someone wanted an inexpensive portrait created of their loved ones, they'd visit a silhouette artist. Within minutes and with nothing more than a pair of scissors, paper and a skillful eye and hand, they would walk away with a wonderful little image with a remarkable resemblance to the subject. 200 years later, Karl is still carrying on this classic tradition.
If you'd like to join us to have your tot's silhouette portrait created, please call (707)579-2165, email or stop by our Santa Rosa, CA store or our Healdsburg, CA store to make an appointment. Karl will be wielding his magical scissors beginning at 10:00 at each location. Cost is $25 per portrait, $15 for a duplicate and an additional $16 if you'd like it framed.
We're so excited to have him joining us for a third year in a row and if you haven't seen a silhouette artist in action, you have to check it out. In two minutes flat, he will cut the likeness of your child with amazing precision and dexterity. Enjoy!
