I've been noticing these silhouette portraits cropping up in magazines and stores lately, like this one by the artist Carter Kustera from Domino magazine and the one below from Elle Decor. The cynic in me says that it is all one stylist working for a bunch of publishers but I don't think it is so. Too much of a coincidence, even for today's groovy interconnectedness.
I do know that Jonathan Adler is also a big fan of the artist Carter Kustera who will do custom portraits for you through Adler's store. I saw a few when I was in LA like the one below from his new book My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living and I have to admit that I absolutely loved them.
I've even found this great letterpress card from egg press with a fabulous silhouette portrait of a dog, below. Too cool. I'm thinking I like these things so much that, though it may be a bit pet obsessed, I just might have to make a portrait of my own pooches, Sir Poops and Flora! We'll just have to see about that, so stay tuned.
