It's Been One Year Since Murder Castle... Next Puzzle Is In The Works!
Hope everyone has been enjoying their Murder Castle puzzles & prints. It's officially been one year since the Kickstarter was fully funded, and what a year it's been! Since then, almost a thousand Murder Castles have been shipped all over the world (sent one to Singapore today!) and there are new orders every day. Thanks so much to all of you for funding and sharing the project - there's no way it would have been a success without your help.
My goal is to release a new Cartoon Cutaway jigsaw puzzle/print every year, and the next one is already in the works! Here is a sneak peek, and you can watch it develop by following me on Instagram @holly_the_red and my Facebook page where I'll be posting regular updates. I haven't yet revealed the subject, but it will become clear to aficionados of the macabre once I start adding details. I learned a ton from the last one, lessons I'm applying to make this one even better. It's quite a bit more complex than Murder Castle and I'm packing it with way more clues and hidden stuff!
Beyond shipping Murder Castles and researching the next few Cartoon Cutaway projects, I've been busy with lots of exciting illustration work ranging from the new Nashville Zoo map (to be released this Spring) and wine labels, to advertisements and personal portraits. Check out my website to see new work and sketchbook drawings. You can buy prints and puzzles in the website store, and there's even more Carden Illustration stuff available on my etsy page. If you're interested in commissioning custom artwork, just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again for all your support, and I can't wait to finish this next puzzle for you!
