Pose for the silhouette artist to the stars in Snohomish

Imagine having your portrait done in just two minutes by a masterful artist who has crafted the profiles of Tom Cruise, Oprah Winfrey, Martha Stewart and Drew Barrymore.
Karl Johnson, a third-generation master silhouette artist, will be doing hand-cut portraits at Bee Bops & Lollipops in Snohomish on Nov. 15. Johnson creates each portrait freehand by simply looking at a subject's profile. It only takes him one to two minutes.
Johnson is blind in one eye, and without binocular vision he learned to judge distance by examining shadows.
He's cut silhouettes for guest at places like the National Portrait Gallery, Universal Studios and 20th Century Fox.
Sound interesting? Act fast and call Bee Bops & Lollipops in Snohomish for an appointment, 360-568-2333.
The silhouette is mounted on a 5x7 card for $25. Duplicates are $15, and framing is available for $16.
