The Coolest Etch-A-Sketch Art Ever Etched
One of the earliest toys that most people can remember playing with is the Etch-A-Sketch, a toy that allows the user to draw with knobs that control aluminum powder via the X and Y axis. At best, most people were usually only able to draw simple shapes like a box, or maybe a cube if you had a few hours available. But a few sketchy savants have managed to create Etch-A-Sketch drawings that rival art that’s drawn freehand. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that a few artists would crack the code of creating complex and cool Etch-A-Sketch art; after all, sometimes the simplest of tools can create the most beautiful pieces of design. If you don’t believe us, take a peek at this list of the best Etch-A-Sketch art ever etched.
Making Etch A Sketch art not only takes skill, but it requires a ridiculous amount of time and effort to create a drawing that’s more than a few straight lines. When you see some of the creations on this list your head will spin trying to figure out how these artists built such complex worlds out of such small parameters. Hopefully they’ll inspire you to dust off your old Etch-A-Sketch and draw something fun.
But before you do that, vote up the best Etch-A-Sketch drawings, and be careful to not shake your computer – you don’t want all your work to disappear.
