Gift guide: Puzzle Me This: Jigsaw joints of Asian food, jigsaw japes that Hurt so good – Arts

You don’t have to spend all day staring at a screen without saying anything just because you’re staying inside, citizen. You don’t have to be virtual all time, not when there is old technology to help infuse some graphical and tactile interest into your real life, AFK.

Old technology? Yes, but not like the kind of technology that aliens used to help Elvis Presley and Erich von Däniken build the pyramids.

No, we are talking about: puzzles.

Quite on trend, these pictorial puzzles, especially towards the start of Our Pandemic Situation in 2020, but still quite loud as things turn into a later Omicron riddled stream. And, of course, the world’s leading producers of puzzles – aren’t they somewhere in Germany? – may be briefly out of stock some time ago. But we’re not talking about those the slaughterers – although we hated to see them cry, still so frustrated, in their folk and decorative beers.

No we are talking about two American puzzle companies. We’re talking about these providers of a great method for spending the hours of a stuck at home (or at home by choice) day or night. We are talking about :

“Wild”, from the Sam Hurt collection by The Puzzled Co.

These puzzles come straight from Dallas, Texas – right up the road, right? How close is part of why their new collection of puzzles – made with precision waterjet cutting and museum quality print on Waterproof pvc – features the equally adorable and surreal illustrations of Austin’s own Sam Hurt. Yes, these puzzled people have joined forces with Eye beamcreator to unleash an array of weird polychromes in your favorite table setting situation. Bonus: from Classes you can order them, as well as all the other Puzzled collections, online. Corn! Oh! These Sam Hurt in particular are currently available at the Blue Genie Art Bazaar – and you know how much of a treat it is to shop around. this retail and celebratory holiday show.

Puzzle Sensei makes a very happy neko

Yeah, we’re all in the general food scene, aren’t we? And that is why the bright and colorful representations of food on well-made 1000-piece puzzles, well, these are precisely in our wheelhouse. Especially like Puzzle Sensei started with beautiful cartoon images of asian food – rarely represented in the puzzle industry, but often happily devoured by people around the world. We mean: who among us, always on the hunt for five-spice noodles and the subtle flavor of lemongrass, could resist putting the pieces of quite complex puzzles called Shabu Frenzy and Dimsum plant and Lucky ramen (Photo) ? And how about some food-centric philanthropy with your entertainment: Puzzle Sensei donates 5% of its profits to Feeding America. Yeah, we like it. And, because this fantastic, culinary-inflected artist Sarah Becan also gives this Boston-based company a paint-smeared boost, we love these puzzles even more.
