Absolutely Mindblowing

Invented by André Cassagnes, the Etch-a-Sketch was first introduced in the 1960s as a mechanical drawing toy. Many remember their childhood artistic fancies, twiddling with the knobs and moving the stylus to create the lineographic images from the containing aluminum.

While for most the works of art were simply childhood stick figurines, there are many practicing artists who use the device to produce professional works – some even making the work permanent by removing the aluminum powder so shaking will not erase the image. Here are examples of some of the most amazing Etch-a-sketch art:
