Silhouette Portraits

Silhouette portraits are nice but wouldn't they be more fun if they weren't always in that same profile position?
After playing with a few ideas, I ended up creating a fun series of silhouettes where they're all interacting with each other and even escaping their frames!
I have a DIY section in Time Out New York magazine on how to make them. I'm also doing a give away of one of my prints so enter here for a chance to win!
