http://snipurl.com/1bmtnr

"George Vlosich’s art isn’t your traditional paint on a canvas, but rather lines on an Etch A Sketch. While every child spends hours trying to draw a square with a triangle on top to form a house, Vlosich takes it to the next level – well, to a whole new level. Since the age of 10 in 1989, George has spent thousands of hours perfecting his skill. He’s had the opportunity to sketch some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, and has different pieces scattered in galleries around the world, sometimes selling for upwards of $10,000."
