The Magic Dust of Child Artists

When recently asked how his political candidate would explain certain positions taken during the
nomination process with contrary positions to be taken during the general election, the campaign chief
replied that stated political positions were “like an Etch A Sketch,”—meaning they could simply be
flipped over, erased and begun over from scratch.
Were it that adult life were as simple as a happy Etch A Sketch memory from childhood.
(The campaign chief took heavy heat for his flippant, if truthful, statement.) The incident made
me wonder how many of us had early experiences as “sketch artists” with that incredible red toy that
has become almost standard issue for so many children still to this day.

I've been Etch a Sketching regularly for about five years, professionally for less than one. One day, I randomly bought a pen with a micro-sized Etch a Sketched affixed to the top of it while attending college. Happy with my results on the tiny pen, I decided to buy a full sized etch, which I used to create my first cityscape, New York City.

A few years later, I sketched my Chicago cityscape for a friend out there. After getting a good internet response, I sketched Boston, Philadelphia, San Francisco - and now I'm sketching all my friends, family, favorite musicians, and still New York City based subjects.

I hope to do gallery exhibits all over the world someday.

Thanks to all my visitors, comment leavers, llama givers and especially the watchers. You warm my tender etch-a-heart.

Please follow my art on facebook, where I sometimes Etch a Sketch people when I have the time. facebook.com/bryansketch
