Etch A Sketch Artist Creates a Stunningly Detailed Aerial Cityscape of Midtown Manhattan

Etch-a-Sketch artist Bryan Lee Madden recently created this incredible detailed piece of single stroke art featuring an aerial shot of the Chrysler Building and Midtown Manhattan.

When asked on Reddit how long it took to complete, Madden said it “about 25hrs over 1 month.” Madden also said he “planned ahead, drilled holes in the back and sifted out all the sand”, so it can’t be shaken/erased.
