Today is National Etch A Sketch day! Happy Birthday Etch A Sketch!
In celebration, here is a fun Chicago-themed Etch A Sketch I made for the winner of a raffle I had at work! Given the time I had to create this, I am very pleased with how it turned out. If I had more time, I might have considered adding more detail and cleaning up some areas but overall, I like where this piece is. I’m glad I finally devoted a classic-size Etch A Sketch to Chicago! :)

Psyduck!

At anime midwest, I bought the cutest psyduck pokemon card ever and decided to etch a sketch it then and there. Psyduck is one of my all-time favorite pokemon :) Took ~1.5 hours

America! (Sorry Alaska and Hawaii!)This took almost exactly half an hour, and I made a video of me talking while etching this from start to finish. I’ll upload it to youtube as soon as I learn how to edit footage

I added a nice custom frame option for the original pocket size etch a sketch to my etsy store! This one here is a self portrait from my black hair & braces days:)

This is an Etch A Sketch of Budd Lynch, the Red Wings announcer at Joe Louis arena from 1985-2012. This was made for an annual benefit in his honor.

I recently got a fun commission from a local—the Chicago skyline! (well as much of it as I could fit on a pocket etch a sketch). Both the client and I were thrilled with the final result. I’m glad I took decent photos of it before sending it off!

Last Tuesday I was invited to show my etch a sketch art at the Disney Social Media Moms conference in Oak Brook IL! I had so much fun and had the opportunity to share my work with social media-savvy moms from all over the US. Meeting Mickey at the end was the cherry on top to a magical day :)

I uploaded mushu recently but want to share the details too!

Last week I went to an anatomical drawing workshop that focused on surface landmarks of the arm. The workshop ended in a 30 minute pose so I decided to etch it :)

This one time about two years ago, a fashion blogger in Chicago took a photo of me. Guys, I really like Pikachu.

I decided to add a photo with detail so you can see the new shading technique I used in the top of her dress!

I was hanging out with some awesome friends from college yesterday and etched this while riding the train and chatting. Reminds me of petals
