Time for a Little Game… Where’s Wally?

Published by on in Illustrations / 13 images

Published in the United States and Canada as Where’s Waldo? this is a series of children’s books created by British illustrator Martin Handford. The books consist of a series of detailed double-page spread illustrations depicting dozens or more people doing a variety of amusing things at a given location. Readers are challenged to find a character named Wally hidden in the group. Wally’s distinctive red-and-white striped shirt, bobble hat, and glasses make him slightly easier to recognise, but many illustrations contain “red herrings” involving deceptive use of red-and-white striped objects. Later entries in the long-running book series added other targets for readers to find in each illustration. The books have also inspired a TV show, comic strip and a series of video games. And I think it’s safe to say that a lot of us have tried to find him in one of the many illustrations there are. I have to admit, over the years I have totally forgotten about him, until last week when I came across the facebook pageĀ Where’s Wally. Now that I am more into design than when I was a kid I started looking closer at the illustrations (and of course I was looking for Waldo as well) and came to the conclusion that the illustrator did a very clever job in each of his works. Take a look for yourself at each of them, and of course, have fun looking for Waldo!
