The campaign season . . . through an Etch-A-Sketch

Posted at 12:30 PM on October 29, 2008 by Sanden Totten

This campaign has been a long and drawn-out affair. To help us look back at all that's happened, a college friend of mine named Alli Katz (yes, that's her real name) has, well, drawn it out some more . . . using an Etch-A-Sketch.

Alli has delicately assembled some fine portraits of the big moments in the race for the White House. Like this moment from New Hampshire:


She did 24 pictures in 24 hours covering everything from primaries to plumbers. The moments she documented were suggested to her by fans of the site.


That's Tina Fey impersonating the Alaskan Governor on SNL for those of you who can't make out the fine details of the sketch . . .

Be warned, Alli's site has some colorful language and partisan viewpoints.

The drawings are part of her on-going quest to document great moments in history using one line and two circular toggles. Check out some of her past pictures like the collapse of the Berlin Wall, the storming of the Bastille, the explosion of the Hindenburg, or the death of punk legends Sid and Nancy.
