Artist: Sam Millard Dimensions: 20cm x 30cm Piece Count: 122
After meeting Sam at the 2018 Art & Craft Market in Calgary, we agreed to work together on a smallish, budget-friendly "snack" or "teaser" puzzle that would appeal to kids of all ages. The result is a fun, quick diversion that highlights the hidden geometry and animals that often populate Sam's eye-catching abstract landscapes. You'll have fun finding many hidden creatures in the puzzle and the art!
Sam works from her home studio in Kimberley, BC. To see more of Sam's art, make sure you visit her website at How Original Art.
Artist: Julien Delval Dimensions: 43cm x 30cm Piece Count: 472
Julien Delval is perhaps most well known for his beautiful and exquisitely detailed illustrations that appear on many fantasy book covers for adults and teens. Julien is also a sought-after illustrator for board games, which is how this particular puzzle came to be. Malédiction was originally the cover art for a now out-of-print game by Alea-Ravensburger in Germany. The timely resuscitation of this thematic cover art seemed a perfect fit for a Halloween-themed puzzle.
Whimsies for this puzzle are themed around sorcery, alchemy and creatures associated with Halloween. Clever puzzlers may also find all the necessary "ingredients" to make their own Feature Creature!
Artist: Steve Driscoll Dimensions: 37cm x 30cm Piece Count: 390
Steve's amazingly beautiful aurora borealis serves as inspiration for this constellation, night sky and space object themed puzzle. The stars and constellations one would typically see around Algonquin Park in November act as the backbone to the pattern of whimsies woven into the puzzle. Hobbyist astronomers may have a distinct advantage in solving this puzzle!
