The man behind the Wasgij sensation, Graham Thompson, loves to draw everyday things and the situation and scrapes we all find ourselves in from time to time. He first started drawing at the tender age of two and just found drawing a natural thing to do. Having left school to be a junior Stained Glass Window Designer. He then moved into advertising. For 30 years he worked as an illustrator/storyboard artist with top London advertising agencies. These days he prefers to work at a less hectic pace and concentrates on drawings for puzzles, calendars and posters.
Graham has a strict routine of drawing from 9am - 6pm every day and one Wasgij takes about three weeks to draw, from pencil rough to finished art. He always draws the picture on the box first, rather than the puzzle, but he admits there is no particularly reason for this!
So how to explain Original Wasgij! The jigsaw like no other, is backwards just like it's name! The Wasgij concept revolves around one funny situation and other jokes emerge from it and the puzzler should always keep an eye out for the grandma character who appears in every Wasgij. The picture on the box is not the puzzle you do, but it does hold all the clues to help you. One character in the picture on the box is the key to the puzzle you do, you do the puzzle of what they would be able to see. Wasgij is the latest, greatest challenge for puzzlers - watch out, once you've tried one you could become addicted!
Graham says that puzzler's should realise that a little bit of "artistic licence" is used when "reversing" the box illustration. Every effort is made to make it look right, so the puzzle picture is not an exact reflection of the box picture.
