Anna And Elsa On A Etch-A-Sketch

Have you ever seen the amazing artists who can take an Etch-A-Sketch, you know the red toy that you have a vertical dial and a horizontal dial and you can draw a image.  Once your done or screw up you just shake it upside down and you have a blank slate to start over.  I have seen many artist renderings on these over the years and I’m amazed at what these artists can do.  The simple fact that they can’t erase even one line is amazing.

Last year, Disney introduced their readers to Jane Labowitch, who is known by many online as “Princess Etch A Sketch.” True to her nickname, one of Jane’s amazing talents is her ability to create intricate pieces of art using Ohio Art’s famous Etch A Sketch® drawing toy.

Last year when Disney commissioned Jane, they had her etch Cinderella Castle and Sleeping Beauty Castle.  Disney then made those available as a downloadable desktop or tablet wallpaper.

Since then, Disney has continued to work Jane on several exciting projects. In June, she was the featured artist at our Disney Social Media Moms “On the Road” conference in Chicago, where she not only displayed her art but even etched portraits of a few lucky attendees. (She can create a person’s portrait on an Etch A Sketch® in approximately 12 minutes.)

Since the announcement came out yesterday that “Frozen Summer Fun LIVE!” has been extended four more weeks through September 28, they asked Jane to use her talents to Etch Anna and Elsa.

It took her approximately one hour to create the piece on a Pocket Etch A Sketch®. Which would even be more difficult as the pocket ones are only a few inches wide and tall.  Disney then took the hour of work and condensed into this short video.
