Simple complexity

Hey y'all
My name is Tomer Markovitz and this my shop :)
Here I illustrate and design interlocked jigsaw puzzles of different animal groups.
With the finest scroll-saw blade and many years of experience, these puzzles are hand made from a continues block of solid African walnut wood by my buddy Alon Levinson (Puzzleson on Etsy) .

When designing a tower puzzle, I set out to achieve all the crucial goals that I believe makes a brilliant puzzle.
1. Create a puzzle where all the animals are in a natural pose and not squished, rotated or have unexplained holes in them.
2. Make each animal stand alone and still look normal, recognizable and whole.
3. Cut the puzzle from a single piece of wood.
4. Make it simple enough to be affordable, yet complex enough to appeal for all ages.
5. Throw out as little wood as possible in the cutting process.
6. Fit neatly inside a rectangular box.
In my works, I strive to be original. I always look for small things that no one has thought of, or took the time and effort to investigate or play with.
I like to make things that stops people for one moment and say to themselves "that's nice" before moving on. I like to create things that are visually complex, but has a fun and simple concept for the chance to subconsciously make someone's day a bit brighter.

    I guess my main title is probably "Graphic Designer" since I have a degree in it, but I also consider myself as a general artist. Illustration, motion graphics, 3D, drawing and web design/build. I try to master as much as i can before settling down.
