Video: Watch Chris Yates Make Sculptural Puzzles out of Wood

My friend Chris Yates is a master puzzlemaker! That sounds like some sort of official title conferred by an august, puzzly governing body of some sort, so I’m just going to assume that it is.

Chris makes original jigsaw puzzles out of wood, using a scroll saw! He’s made over three thousand individual puzzles over the past 10+ years.

In this video, I got him to show off how he does it.

There’s now less than a week left in the Wondermark Puzzles Kickstarter! We’ve done very well, with (as I write) nearly 400 dashing backers so far, all clearly personages of exquisite taste. I’m really excited to GET THESE PUZZLES MADE.

Chris, of the video above, is also offering some special PREMIUM TIER PUZZLES that he will uniquely hand-make for YOU, featuring your favorite Wondermark or Malki-in-General image!

With just a few days remaining, there are several of these premium spots still open, over on the Kickstarter page. If you would like a plaything that’s also a sculpture that’s also an art piece that’s also a brain-challenge that’s also a collectible that’s also a Wondermark thing, perhaps the premium puzzles may be of interest to you.

Whether or not you back the premium tier, I definitely recommend a click-spin through Chris’ online puzzle portfolio (and online store).

Jigsaw Puzzles are Fully Funded!

I’m very pleased to announce that our Wondermark jigsaw puzzles are now fully funded!

The campaign is still open to backers through October 9, however, so I consulted with my closest adviser to brainstorm some stretch goals, and we thought of a couple.

As I wrote on Tumblr this Saturday:

Sometimes you have an idea in the shower, and you are willing to sacrifice everything else you have planned for the day because you know otherwise, it will never get done. This is what I call ‘Chasing your enthusiasm’ and I have rarely regretted it.

Video: Boom! And a Spoken Word Remix Comes Out

A little while ago, I wrote and produced a song that can only be described as THE PARTY HIT OF THE SUMMER.

But I’m older now, and a little wiser, and my beard is a little saltier. I still honor and respect my previous work, but I feel like the time is right to revisit it a bit more…seriously.

The message, however, remains unchanged. Boom, you see – a bear, indeed, comes out.

I Made An Infomercial And You Can Watch It Right Now

I made a video with Kris Straub!

Kris makes videos of his own too (with Mikey Neumann), they are very funny. This one is with ME though.

This is of course in support of all the nonsense I talked about last week, which you can get here!
