Puzzlemania by Peter Grosshauser

During the past year Petter Grosshauser created numerous illustrations for Puzzlemania Magazine – a creation of Highlights For Children. Each magazine contained chances to solve puzzles, navigate mazes, and find hidden pictures among many activities for young children. Peter created “hidden picture” illustrations where kids would look for hidden objects, items that should not be in the scene, etc. These are a few of the illustrations that appeared in the various issues.

Maze Placemats Book by Larry Jones

One of our fun projects for this year was a series of mazes to be used in a Mazes Mats book for Publications International. Geared for children 4 and up, Larry Jones illustrated mazes that were kids placemats for fun on the run! Designed as easy-tear pages, kids could use them as “boredom busters” to take anywhere – in the car, to a restaurant or waiting room – wherever they choose! Here are a few of the mazes that Larry created.

Project WET Website

In the beginning of 2011 Peter Grosshauser was asked by Project WET to create artwork for a website they were building. Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) is based in Bozeman, MT and they provide educational materials all over the world concerning water and water use. Peter has been working for them for many years and they wanted the artwork to reflect the same style he used to illustrate nearly 50 kids books for them previously. The assignment was to create an interactive, animated web game that would be fun for children. Basically Peter’s job was to create all the frames, borders, and all the different elements that were involved in each subtopic and game. Each character illustrated had to be in different layers (different layers for arms, legs, tails, etc…) for animation purposes.

His favorite part of this project was creating the home page globe with all the different elements on different layers which spin at different speeds. The Blue Traveler game was also fun to create. Peter worked with Big Bad Tomato out of Los Angeles for this section of the web site. All illustrations were created in Painter and Photoshop while listening to many hours of the Ricky Gervais podcasts! View this fun site at – http://www.discoverwater.org/
