27 Waldos

Not too long ago Islands Fold proposed the idea of a collection of artists each creating their own unique version of Waldo (or Wally depending on your location). The artists would also imagine an environment for him to hide in. Somehow this amazing idea was rejected by the company who owns the rights. What a colossal mistake!

  • It’s interesting how similar some of these are to the original, somehow I expect vaster differences, I think it’s the hair and eyes that make them similar. There’s some interesting ideas though, I like the first one on the top two lines and the very last one as they give off a very new looking character. I like the first one for his features – the nose especially. The second one I like because it’s so different and the last one I like for it’s youghtfulness.
