Today marks the release of the June issue of Highlights Magazine! And in it you’ll find my Picture Puzzler. Can you find one 1, two 2′s, three 3′s, four 4′s , five 5′s, six 6′s, seven 7′s, eight 8′s, and nine 9′s? See it big here!
There’s a lot of crazy back story to this one. First off, the editors came up with the idea of the Numberman Family independent of me and my name; but obviously once the Art Director learned of the idea, he reached out to me.
Second, this issue is the feature of a documentary about the making of a Highlights issue! Thusly, I was interviewed about the making and process behind this piece, and more generally, what it’s like to work for Highlights (It’s awesome!) I will let everyone know when that doc is released, of course.
Thirdly, I actually hid a second 1 in this piece. But it’s harder to find and only suggested at. I did it for myself and never told anyone, but an editor actually found it on her own! So, can you?
