NY Times Crossword Drawings

I love word games–though I prefer word searches, games like Boggle and Word Search, to crosswords. But I know many people who are crossword enthusiasts.

Artist Emily Jo Cureton combines a love of crosswords and a love of art in her illustrations. Every day, she posts a drawing on her blog that is inspired by the NY Times Crossword Puzzle, and that also includes a few clues. Some of the drawings are quite beautiful, many are interesting, and a few are violent–but all contain words and most are reminiscent of a crossword puzzle, with art layered on top.

Thanks to Notcot.org for the link.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
