Each completed Etch A Sketch is an original work of art that takes 75-100 hours to complete. Once finished, these pieces are preserved, allowing them to be featured in galleries and collections around the world. Most of George’s personal collection of etches have been signed by the awe-struck celebrities depicted in his art.

He is now taking the line work from his original Etches creating large paintings and murals. They are in homes, offices, stadiums and ballparks around the world.
