Impressive

An artist has drawn a very nice portrait of Prince William and Kate Middleton on an Etch A Sketch.

Etch A Sketch pictures are usually removed by shaking the toy. In case, like me, you're wondering how the artist keeps his pictures from being erased, Wikipedia has the answer.

Royalty miniatures

I received an email from Victor at Golden Chersonese Miniatures, a toy company that specializes in "metal miniatures to portray exotic, lost kingdoms and unusual cultures from the Far East." In his email, he mentioned that he's interested in making miniatures of court royalty and dress.

If you're into minatures or just want to learn more, you may want to check out the GMCTOY website. (I don't know anything else about this company, or miniatures for that matter, so be sure to do your own research before buying anything.)
