Etch-A-Sketch President

George Vlosich is an artist from Ohio and he recently sketched a portrait of the recently sworn-in American President, Barack Obama. So whats so neat about that ?
For starters he didn't use any paper or pencil, but used just two dials on his "Etch-A-Sketch" to create this portrait. This task took him 80 hours to complete but the result was worth the effort.
Vlosich's magic with Etch-A-Sketch was revealed in his family trip to DC in 1989.

Vlosich said: 'I've been drawing since I was two years old, but the real magic on the Etch A Sketch started in 1989 on our family trip to Washington D.C.

'Before we left, we stopped over my grandparents' house to say goodbye. My mom pulled out her old 1960's Etch A Sketch so my brother and I would have something to play with in the car. I etched a picture of the U.S. Capitol. 'When I was finished, my mom and dad were amazed! My dad saw it and immediately stopped at a gas station to take a picture of my creation before I erased it.
