The true Etch-A-Sketchist leaves no evidence of his labors.

Actually, you should post it on metatalk. But I wouldn't do that, as you will surely be mocked unmercifully.

Asperger in action.

That's what happens when you try to post using an Etch-A-Sketch.

This artist needs a grant to purchase a full-sized instrument.

Asperger in action.

Troll much? I dated a guys for years who was perfectly sociable and charming and a fantastic etch-a-sketch artist. He would draw elaborate pirate ships and a fantastic still life of the pinball machine at his work, all freehand on the etch a sketch. He just happened to have a job where there was often hours of downtime, a spare etch-a-sketch, and a boss that enjoyed the drawings he made. When he left that job, his boss gave him the drained etch-a-sketch with the pinball picture preserved as best as possible.

With these pictures, I was just glad to see he drew megaman in the falling/jumping position, which is when he always looked cutest.

Asperger's disorder is a high functioning autistic spectrum disorder with narrow, intense interests manifested in obsessional absorption in inanimate objects or systematic things. Many people diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome can be gainfully employed and happily married with an engaging social life. Spending 5-10 hours in creating an image on an etch-a-sketch is symptomatic of autistic spectrum disorders.

Happy now, piratebowling?

Yes, thank you. I have to apologize for snapping as well, I get frustrated when I see people doing something amazing or slightly out of the ordinary, and people want to attach a disorder or syndrome to it. That's my issue and I really shouldn't have gotten upset over it.
