You may remember playing with an Etch A Sketch to make fun shapes appear on a screen. By turning the knobs, you could move a stylus horizontally or vertically to shift around aluminum powder to draw an image. Most people would have been proud to haphazardly write their name on an Etch A Sketch. But the true potential of the red plastic toy is unveiled in these amazing illustrations by Princess Etch A Sketch, Jane "pikajane" Labowitch.
Pikajane is an Illinois-based artist who earned her BFA in Illustration at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. She recalls playing with her very first Etch A Sketch when she was four, which introduced her to the amazing world of art. You can follow her work on DeviantArt and watch time-lapses of her drawings on YouTube. You can even buy her creations on Etsy.
