Crazy Talented Etch-A-Sketch Genius (0)

Some guy named George Vlosich III apparently had the vocation to become the world's ninth marvel: The Man Who Does Killer Illustrations On An Etch-A-Sketch Gizmo. His website, titled Etched In Time, presents a gallery of his most famous illustrations, a short bio about him, how he works, and more. Friends, this is worth a see.

I can only imagine most of you have had an Etch-A-Sketch in your childhood. Doodling took a very-hard-to-produce turn in the 20th Century thanks to Etch-A-Sketch. It was great fun drawing staircase-shaped flowers, staircase-shaped houses, or your staircase-shaped parents. Who cares if it was bad, you'd just sha-ha-sha-ha-sha-hake it away, and start a new one.

This guy. He can't shake it. Due to the complexity of his illustrations and the rather global nature of the Etch-A-Sketch eraser, he cannot make a SINGLE mistake. Hours of practice, thorough preparation and Dalai-Lama-like patience yield results like what is shown below.
This man, friends. THIS MAN knows how to twist a knob like a pro. Salute.

(Thanks Benoit!)
