The Etch A Sketch has been a doodle phenomena for over 50 years. I still remember moving the knobs left/right and up/down for hours, only to end up with simple squares and stick figures.
We've recently discovered the work of Rick Nuanez or Mr. Etch A Sketch, a prime example that practice makes perfect. Rick explains on his interview with seattlepi.com how without any drawing experience, he picked up an Etch A Sketch and started creating these highly detailed drawings. We uncovered an entire world dedicated to this wonder of a toy, from videos and a flickr group to pages like those of the Etchasketchist.
