George Vlosich: The LeBron James of Etch A SketchI first met George Vlosich III at the 2004 National Sports Collectors Convention, which was held in Cleveland, Ohio. He had a display booth where he exhibited his fantastic artwork. Vlosich is a very talented artist who works in multiple media but he is most well known for his remarkable ability to create highly detailed images using an Etch a Sketch. I wrote a profile about him for the November 12, 2004 issue of Sports Collectors Digest.
By chance, I recently bumped into him at a Cavaliers playoff game. He told me that he designed the "FatHead" walls at Quicken Loans Arena and the logo for the Cavaliers' 1986-87 Hardwood Classics uniforms and that he was working on an Etch A Sketch of LeBron James. Here is a link to a Youtube video showing how Vlosich created the James sketch:
