Commission/project List

Etch a sketch commission pricing can be discussed by sending me a note. They might cost more, depending on extraneous conditions. Such as, "I want this done by this time" or "I want it on something larger than a pocket etch a sketch" or "I am asking for something with an excruciating amount of detail in it".

Katniss Etch A Sketch by pikajane
Katniss Etch A Sketch
This is an original concept I came up with for Katniss for Mockingjay part 2! From sketch to final piece, I'd estimate that this took ~10 hours.

St. Basil's Cathedral etch a sketch
I was given permission by :iconagiantsquid: to etch their wonderful photograph:

St Basil's by aGiantSquid

This piece was well over a year in the making and I am thrilled with how it turned out! Countless hours were poured into this. The hardest part was those swirly spires!

Like many other Americans, I was introduced to this architectural masterpiece by playing Tetris.

EDIT (06-14-15): This Etch A Sketch piece is now a featured design on my new business card!

(new) Creation of Adam - hands Etch A Sketch
This is an updated rendition of this older Etch A Sketch piece in my gallery:

Creation of Adam: hands by pikajane

This time, I opted to use the newer pocket size Etch A Sketch, which is marginally smaller than the old pocket size (pictured above). This was made as a gift for a contributor to my indiegogo campaign that I had about 2 years ago for funding my trip to Paris! Holy cow, once upon a time I went to Paris OMG

This updated rendition of the Michelangelo classic is featured on my new business card:

New Etch A Sketch business cards
Hey everyone! Hi!  it's really been too long since I've been active here...Waaaah! this is something I'd like to change starting with this here deviation! :happybounce:


So...my new business cards came in! I got them from moo.com which allows you to order multiple images on one side within the same order. The cards are really high quality and well worth the price! The last card in my hand shows the front side which has my info on it. I'm so pleased with these little guys Love

I had an earlier version of this business card pictured below)
Etch A Sketch Business Card by pikajane
which I worked really hard on (I actually created all of that information that is on the card on an actual Etch A Sketch!) but was logistically a nightmare to print. I made it the exact size as an actual Etch A Sketch, which translated really well, but didn't work out how I wanted because the beauty of a business card is that its size allows you to throw it in your pocket or wallet and not worry about damaging it. I got the original cards printed at local places on thick card stock, and cut them myself by hand. That always took a really long time! I finally decided to take the plunge when I realized that the info I included on my old card was not sufficient (my new cards now have my phone number and email as well). I'll miss my old business card, but I am happy with my new ones and am ready to retire my old design.


It took a few hours to properly photoshop an Etch A Sketch that would fit into the moo template parameters and choose which art I'd like to feature on my cards. Add a few more hours for the other side - I made the banner element from scratch on illustrator and designed many concepts before I chose the one on my card. By the way, you can see all 4 pieces that are featured on my cards below:

Jane Labowitch
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
I am a recent graduate of the American Academy of Art in Chicago with a BFA in Illustration. Besides my illustrative work, I also do etch a sketch art.

I also doodle! It's a borderline compulsive artistic endeavor of mine. I work on my doodles whenever I have pockets of time to work with--waiting in line, sitting in lectures, riding the transit, etc. I also like working on them at my desk at home, while listening to music.

I am truly thankful for all the support I have received here on dA!

If you would like to contact me, please either send me a note, drop me a comment, or if you prefer to send me an email, you may contact me at janelabowitch@gmail.com
Interests
And I just found out they are celebrating it on the Sketch Madness website!

sketchmadness.ohioart.com/

As some of you are already aware, I have been in a 3-round bracket-style competition hosted by the Ohio Art company, which is the company that produces Etch A Sketch. I was pitted against 7 other Etch A Sketch artists to compete for a trophy, and today I won! It was a very hard-fought victory and my fellow etchers were excellent opponents. The link I posted about shows a gallery of the other entries of Etch A Sketch art, which is definitely worth taking a look at if you have a chance.

I want to thank every one of you that helped me out by voting, commenting, favoriting and spreading the word! It's all of you that made a difference and helped get me across the finish line.

I know it's cheesy and I said this on my Facebook fanpage, but the sentiments remain the same. I wish I had a giant Etch A Sketch so I could etch a big warm hug for you guys! :la: :heart:

And I just want to give a biiiiig thank you to everyone here on dA that has been such an amazing support throughout the years. All the comments, the watches, the favorites...they mean so much to me. You guys keep me creating.

I have so much to thank for the community here on dA. This is where I started everything. This is where my art first got noticed. And the people who follow my work mean so much to me.

You guys are the best! Now let's celebrate - I've got a trophy on its way to me with my name on it; woohooooo!

Donate

pikajane has started a donation pool!
2,806 / 5,000
I am starting a donation pool so I can start buying prints of other artists on DA! I would also love to start supporting other contests, etc.

Etch a sketch commissions are individually priced now, and can be further discussed by sending me a note.

ALSO...please check out the waiting list by scrolling down my page. JUST SO YOU KNOW...I am a busy, busy person. You won't be getting your piece in a very short time frame. Not only do I have a job and go to art school full time, but I happen to have a social life as well.
With that in mind, I find that I do not have as much time or inclination to do commissions as before. I am working on selling my physical work, but if you are still interested in commissioning me, please do send a note!

You must be logged in to donate.
