Anyone who’s picked up an Etch A Sketch knows the joy, and frustration, of creating a single line piece of art. Well hang on, because this person puts all to shame.
There’s no doubt that talent and lots of imagination can transform an ordinary art into pretty much anything or something extraordinary. We’ve previously seen incredible conceptual art and even astonishing coffee art, and we can now add a 1960s childhood toy to that same mix of outstandingly created art.
This is after Chicago-based artist Jane Labowitch a.k.a Princess Etch masterfully created unique works of art on a simple Etch-A-Sketch. Having started playing with toys as a four-year-old, it looks like the 24-year-old artist spent a lot of her childhood time playing with the drawing toy that she mastered how to artistically operate it and create captivating works of art.
Combine that with a BFA in drawing, Labowitch has recreated iconic paintings including the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh and The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo among others. She has since created a lucrative business around her inimitable artistic medium and intricate designs that can be found on her Etsy shop.
