Over lockdown my wife and I devised this 80 Films From The 80s picture puzzle, picking away at it in between day jobs and childcare. I did the artwork and my wife did the colouring - it proved a welcome distraction for both of us. The drawing was a fun challenge, as the scale was huge and I had to work to a more simplistic style than I am used to, while still maintaining an essential likeness - Martin Handford was a big influence.
It was a lovely collaboration and the response from puzzlers has been fantastic. If it has given people a brief distraction during this difficult time, then we are happy.
