Etch a Sketch Artist Says, "Etch Me if You Can"

As a kid, everyone had an Etch-a-Sketch toy. While most of us struggled to draw recognizable pictures, Los Angeles-based artist Christoph Brown began creating portraits. Brown launched Etch U Productions in 2003 and has been Etch-a-Sketching ever since. In just minutes, guests can have their portraits drawn on their own personal Etch-a-Sketch, which can be taken home as a party favor. The screen can be hung on the wall and will not erase unless it is actively shaken or turned over, Brown assures. The images also can be blown up into posters or printed on T-shirts, mugs, hats and other merchandise. And if that's not enough, Brown can digitally record the whole process on video for a custom presentation of the drawing's creation. For more information, visit
