This is Karl Johnson's time to shine. Never have we appreciated old forms of art more than now.

Of course, Karl Johnson's silhouette art isn't necessarily a commentary on all of that. Instead, the Southern California-based artist is just doing what he loves. Browse through the gallery above to see his impressive work. Stats for Victorian Paper Art Trending: Older & Chilly
