Do you like contests? How about puzzles? Are you creative? If you answered yes to any of those questions then I’ve got a contest that you’ll love! I know I’m the one usually hosting giveaways but I thought this one was unique and inspires creativity (which I love) so I thought some of you may be interested! All of the details can be found below!
ARTIST ALEX BEARD COMBINES ART, CREATIVITY AND GAMING WITH IMPOSSIBLE PUZZLESTM CONTEST, NEW PUZZLE VARIETIES AND UNTAMED GAMESTM
Renowned Artist Inspires Individual Creativity with Contest
Deadline December 31, 2009
When renowned New Orleans/New York artist Alex Beard introduced his successful line of Impossible PuzzlesTM a year ago, he offered people the chance to take an unconventional, challenging, creative approach to art and games simultaneously. The puzzles were wildly successful, as was the introduction of Untamed Games TM, a series of strategy games featuring original artwork to inspire creative thinking. By using unconventional avenues, such as puzzles, strategy games and books, to inspire creative thinking, Beard is breaking down the barriers between the artist and the public. With that in mind, Alex Beard introduces the Impossible PuzzlesTM online contest.
From now through December 31, 2009, Beard invites puzzle lovers to interact with him through his Impossible PuzzlesTM online contest. Participants are invited to upload images of their unique works of puzzle art to be judged by Beard at the end of the year. The winner will receive a one-of-a-kind piece of original art created by Beard. For more details or to enter, visit www.alexbeardimpossiblepuzzles.com.
I actually spent quite a while on the Alex Beard website today and found so great things that would make great holiday gifts that I couldn’t end the post without sharing them with you!
HexahedronTM: An Abstract Matching Game
Recreate Beard’s art one cube at a time. Choose a painting card, study it, and then race against the timer to match the artwork in 3 dimensions. Six cubes, six sides, and the sand is falling fast! ($29.99)
Face to FaceTM: A Cubist Strategy Game
Play an eye, a nose or a mouth in the right place at the right time to win the game, and in the process create a unique cubist composition. It’s a new twist on dominoes: players need to match facial features and colors. ($19.99 - ages 8+)
