Philadelphia Etch

By bryanetch

The city of Philadelphia. I took extra care when etching City Hall, as it's my favorite landmark of the city. I documented and posted the progress of this piece on my blog (, which can be found in the archives (2010).

Thanks so much for all the kind words and to those who helped make this my first Daily Deviation!

Okay, this is just incredible. :O  Doing a cityscape is impressive enough, but doing it on an Etch-a-Sketch?  The detail is absolutely brilliant and I love it and must extend all the kudos to you. :clap:

Awesome job!  Congrats on the Daily Deviation! :la:

This is a great view of the city. I live in Philly and I can easily make out the landmarks. It is not a perfect recreation of the city, but I think this is as close as anyone is going to get on an Etch a Sketch.

My God you must have no life at all

Whoa - just noticed this comment. First of all - If I were to spend 50 hours painting something (which nobody would probably ever see) would I still have no life, or does the medium justify the time? Van Gogh spent a lot of time painting, did he have no life at all? I'm nearly best in the world at this. I've been on TV, in newspapers. No life, I guess. What are you best in the world at?

Secondly, Fuck you.
