Lovely puzzle .. fun to do.. I get very excited when Ordinary Habit releases new puzzle!
Am still working on it between zoom calls. It's a good way to take a break from work. So far, it's lovely artwork!
I loved this puzzle - the print is just so dreamy. Would love to see more puzzles in this art style in the future!
My granddaughter loved this! The colors and patterns are so exciting.
Ilya Milstein is an Australian self-trained illustrator working in New York. Employing a combination of traditional and digital processes in a style reminiscent of Franco-Belgian comics and Japanese woodblock prints, his drawings are often highly-detailed, dense with arcane reference, and nostalgic in their character. His work has been recognized by The Society of Illustrators, American Illustration, and The One Club for Creativity. Clients for his drawings include The New Yorker, The New York Times, and Gucci.
Wunderkammer Repatriation was born from both my affection for cultural artifacts and my issues with their historic looting. The scene depicts a small project of repatriation, showing the considerate descendant of a collector attempting to identify and return the presumably ill-gained contents of her family wunderkammer with the assistance of a band of researchers. ‘Wunderkammer’ is literally translated as 'room of wonder’, which I prefer to the slightly derisive ‘cabinet of curiosities’, and it also offers a double-meaning: perhaps the real wonder in this room is the act taking place. — Ilya Milstein
