I can hard make a right angle look right on an Etch a Sketch, so I always blown away by just about everything the The Etchasketchist on his chosen medium. Here he manages to make a very convincing version of TRON using what I assume is voodoo.
I loved the Etch A Sketch, but all I could ever make was square things on it and even when I did that they mostly turned out uneven. So when I was poking around on the Flickr and found The Etch A Sketchist, needless to say, I was impressed. Not only does The Etch A Sketchist do wonderful work in a challenging medium, but he demonstrates his progress and has done some wonderful retro themed work.
In 2008 the Ohio Art Company, maker of the Etch A Sketch, celebrated their 100th year in business. To make the celebration more magical they released an Etch A Sketch in an attractive collectors tin. I was thinking a lot about the Etch A Sketch and then realized that I no longer owned one anymore. So I ordered the Anniversary Edition. The toy is just as fun as I remember it and the tin looks greats. Here is a tip for you real artists out there, once you have made your masterwork and do not want it erased, you can make it permanent by drilling out holes in the back and shaking out all the powder. Once the powder is out, there is no way for it to erase.
We all know that the Ohio Art Company makes the very fine Etch A Sketch, but what about the messy looking Swirl-O-Paint or Bizzy Buzz Buzz? Well you might have heard of them if only you listened to “Arthur Godfrey Time” on the CBS Radio Network where the Ohio Art Company was a sponsor (at least that is what it says in the corner of the ad).
Check out the genius of the kid on the Etch A Sketch. Is he sketching Fallingwater? Kid has skills.
