Now there's a name you likely don't know. But, oh, you know his most famous work.

Andre Cassagnes, who has passed away at the age of 86, was the inventor of the Etch-A-Sketch.

As toy, artwork, political commentary, even keychain, that red slab of glass, plastic, and aluminum powder with the two knobs has permeated our culture for five decades, with no end in sight. I've owned several over the years, and I've got my eye on the iOS app (only $2.99, or only 99¢ for the one that turns your photos into Etch-A-Sketches).

Bonne chance, Msr. Cassagnes, et merci.
