Very cool.
However, one more cue to add to the addiction.

Some of them look better to me than others, but I love the idea. Just started doing the NYT crossword again this week, too.

Oh, and Drawn's been really good lately. Loved the link to Pink Tentacles' 19th century severed heads from Japanese scrolls and the Tony Stark art blog.

How did I never think to post this? I love Emily Jo Cureton's stuff!

Yay crosswords!

Looks like she solves about as many clues on the NY Times crossword as I can many days.

She's using it as an uncontrolled outside source of inspiration, of course, but the results truly rock. :)

Charming and, in some cases, disarming. Quasi-constraint based crossword illo: oucropo?

I first saw these when Rex began posting them to Rex Parker Does the NYT crossword Puzzle. By the by, if you do the puzzle regularly, and aren't reading that blog, you're missing out.

I have seen many different kinds of art made from crossword puzzles but the one linked above is my favorite thus far. Thanks for sharing it.

Man, these are great, and I wish I had talent at something. I like how clever they are, and this one cracks me up.
