Today I sent this truly outrageous print off to its new home! This is the 5x7 size, complete with packaging and ribbon (of course).
Here's a 5x7 print of one of my favorite Etch A Sketch renditions I ever made!
The hands in my Etch A Sketch Michelangelo's Creation of Adam might appear to be completely disconnected, but if you pay close attention, you'll see that I used the border to connect them. It'll be our little secret!

About

I play with an Etch A Sketch for a living!

My love for Etch A Sketch began when I was around 4. As a kid, I would spend countless hours turning the knobs, creating crude, blocky art. Over time, my scribbles developed into illustrations that became less and less rudimentary. One day on a whim, I brought an Etch A Sketch into my English class in 8th grade, and it was at that moment that I realized that wow, I was the only kid who could confidently draw a cheeseburger, fries and a shake using this simple yet complicated toy.

In high school I began dedicating hours making detailed renditions on an Etch A Sketch. When I was 16, I began using it as a serious artistic medium. I moved to Chicago to attend art school, and practiced Etch A Sketch outside of the classroom while pursuing a degree in illustration.

After graduating from college, I stayed in Chicago and began pursuing a legitimate career in Etch A Sketch. You might be wondering, how can one make a living playing with an Etch A Sketch? Well...I wear a lot of hats! I create custom art, and sell original renditions, as well as prints. I teach workshops and etch portraits at events across the US. And every now and then, I get commissioned to create time lapse videos of me creating art.

The tool of my trade has opened doors for me that I would have never thought could have existed. I've had the fortune of being to travel all over the US, and even to Paris and India, thanks to Etch A Sketch. I've received press from the likes of Buzzfeed, DailyMail, Reddit, CNN, The Huffington Post, Britney Spears, and even Pee-Wee Herman (a huge personal victory for me). My life feels a bit wacky sometimes, and for that I am truly thankful.

Frequently asked questions
How do you make your art permanent?

I drill a hole in the back of the Etch A Sketch, and remove the excess aluminum powder from the inside of the unit. That way, there is nothing left to re-coat the screen when you shake the Etch A Sketch. I've shipped my art all over the world and every piece has made its postal journey intact using this method!

Sizing details

My Etch A Sketch art comes in 1 of 4 sizes - mini, pocket, travel and classic. The dimensions for each size are as follows:

Mini:
Outer frame - 3.75"x3.25" Screen - 2.375"x1.5"

Pocket:
Outer frame - 4.25" x 3.75" Screen - 3"x2.125"

Travel:
Outer frame - 6.125"x5.375" Screen - 4.5"x3.25"

Classic:
Outer frame - 9"x7.375" Screen - 6.25"x4.375"

Prints are available in one of three standard sizes - 5"x7", 8"x10" and 11"x14".

Care instructions

My original Etch A Sketch art has been preserved. When shaken, it will not erase. However, it is not indestructible. It is still important to treat it as you would any work of art. If dropped, light fading is possible. The knobs have been glued down to further ensure the image remains intact.

It is no longer a toy! Keep out of reach of children - if the knobs are forcefully turned it can create permanent lines that will not erase. If you notice any silver powder on the Etch A Sketch, it can be cleaned with a damp, soapy cloth or sanitary wipe.

Do not store for extended periods of time with the image facing down.

Treat your permanent Etch A Sketch rendition as you would any work of art, it will last a lifetime!

Custom and personalized orders

Most of my sales here on etsy are custom orders, and I would be happy to work with you! Most commissions are portrait-based, which is how I've established my pricing structure. See the custom art section of my shop for base pricing and details.

If you're interested in going forward with a commission, send me some reference photos and what size you would like to order. The more photos the merrier - I can help to determine which photo would work best for an Etch A Sketch! Photos that fit more horizontally are encouraged. Once I take a look at the photos you provide, I can send you a complimentary mock-up of how the photo would work on an Etch A Sketch, as well as a solid price quote.

I will begin etching once payment is received.
