What Makes An OddGoods Puzzle Unique?
My brain, my interests, and my passions. If you want to know who I am, just look at my art. Everything you could ever want to know about me is in the lines, shapes, and colors of my creations. Hopefully, something in my art will touch you. Whether an image elicits an emotion, provides a moment of clarity, or just "looks cool", my goal is to give you reason to smile, question, even learn ... And provide you with a frameable piece of art.

Why is OddGoods Different?
Pretty simple, really. There are many dozens of new, boutique puzzle companies out there with their own marketing gimmicks and methods of sourcing art. Only a precious few of them are owned and operated by the artist(s) who creates the most important element of the puzzle. And there is only one me—OddGoods puzzles are made by a lone, greying illustrator who draws every puzzle image by hand.
When you purchase an OddGoods puzzle, 100% of the profits supports the artist and his passions.
(My First) Collection: E is for Endangered
I spent three years and over one thousand two hundred hours drawing the artwork and designing the book for my project E is for Endangered. My original intent was to publish a coloring book ... A pile of rejections turned into a spectacular set of challenging jigsaw puzzles.
This collection is available for pre-order—Reserve your copy early and save 20% at checkout with code: ITSPUZZLETIME20
What do you do when color is removed? How do you sort your pieces? You've only got two of three reference points: shape and pattern.
Are you up for the challenge! Cursing is permitted.
Admire The Art
These puzzles are works of art. Whether you decide to break it up after putting it together or get out the craft glue and preserve this puzzle for posterity, these puzzles are a joy to behold, even if a glass of wine is required to put one together.
5% of every purchase will be donated to organizations dedicated to protecting endangered species around the globe.
You are helping to protect vulnerable wildlife, one puzzle piece at a time.
Collection 2: Currently being designed (with lots of color) ... Stay tuned.
Say hi to the artist, me.
I work too hard, eat too many pickles, spend too much time dreaming about snow, and cater to the incessant demands of a few very ill-mannered and aggressive Anna's hummingbirds that frequent my feeders year-round. Hi, I'm Paul.
Please say hello. I'm always an email, text, or message away. I'd love to make your puzzling acquaintance.
