On Sunday I did a silhouette portrait cutting gig in Seattle. If you haven’t seen me cut silhouett portraits here’s a quick video:
When I cut silhouette portraits I cut two images. There are a couple of reasons why I do it that way. The main one is that two layer of paper is easier to hold and firmer than one piece of paper. Normally I don’t give out the second image unless the person asks me for it. A lot of people ask for the duplicate image, but most people aren’t even aware that there is a second image.
Usually the second image goes into my pocket and I end up throwing it away. I just emptied my pocket from a silhouette portrait cutting gig on Sunday and here’s 70ish duplicate portraits that were left over:
I love doing these silhouette portrait cutting gigs because I get to talk to a lot of people and don’t have to lug around my whole big stage show!
