‘Etch A Selfie’: The Amazing Etch Man Turns Selfies Into Etch A Sketch Portraits (Video)

Etch A Selfie

Practice, they say, makes perfect, and few people demonstrate this maxim as effectively as the artist known as The Amazing Etch Man. He’s the Prince of Etch A Sketch artists, in both senses of the word “Prince,” and he recently demonstrated his skills for a project called Etch A Selfie.

For Etch A Selfie, users sent in selfies that were then converted to Etch A Sketch portraits in real time – allowing The Amazing Etch Man (real name: Eric Etchman) to demonstrate both his artistic skill and his speed behind the toy’s signature dual dials. The video is almost an hour long, so you can bet he has plenty of time for personal anecdotes and war stories – and also that I did not watch the whole thing.

That doesn’t mean you can’t, though, and you’ll find the entirety of Etch A Selfie below. And for more, peruse the Super Deluxe YouTube channel right here.
