There are a lot of strange jobs out there, but Bryan Lee Madden may have the sketchiest of all. After pursuing a career in comedy writing and a college degree in computer science, Madden is now living out his “Plan C” dreams as an Etch A Sketch artist.

We caught up with Madden at his Connecticut home, where he sketched Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington, talked about his technique and his goals, and shared how competitive it is in the Etch A Sketch community. Check out the interview and some of the artist’s amazingly detailed work in the video above.

We’d say Madden has what it takes to shake up the art world, but we’re afraid that would erase all his hard work.
