The Silhouette Man

It was with much sadness last year that i read that the famous 'Silhouette Man' died. S.John Ross was Australia's best known Silhouette Artist

My parents had one done by him of me when i was a toddler, and i wished we had the chance to have one done of Master M.

There is not a lot of his work online , but i did find this of General MacArthur.

I am on the look out for a traditional silhouette artist to do an image of M and his cousin as a gift . If you can recommend someone , please let me know. !

Thank you for posting this. I have one from the Melbourne show when I was 7. Mum and Dad had them from long ago too. I will see if I can find them and post them.

Very sad news.
