Like a live Etch-a-Sketch drawing, self-taught French artist Pierre Emmanuel Godet creates renditions of famous artists and characters using one continuous line, similar to the difficult childhood toy.

Starting in 2010, engineer Pierre Emmanuel Godet began his portraits of famous people with nothing more than a pen, a sheet of paper and lots of planning. Without backtracking at all like the nostalgic Etch-a-Sketch drawing board, the self-taught artist illustrates lively portraits of Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, Batman, Joker, Spock and even Michael Jackson. The French artist's drawings differentiate from other artists by using objects significant to the characters in these depictions to build their image, incorporating meaning into these people as opposed to filling in the white space with random scribbles.
