More Waldos?

I have had two people emaling today saying they and their friends want to create their own versions of rooftop Waldos! One in Phoenix AZ, and one in New Orleans! This is great, and I hope they begin popping up in many cities! My intention is to create a PDF of instructions and provide the grid, so Waldo making will become open source. It will be fun to track their progress on here as well. 

So much media today, and my most hits ever, over 13,000! Thanks! Here is me on CTV.


PS: Would any of you be willing to mail me a copy of the newspaper articles about my Waldo in your city? I think it will impress my teachers if at my graduation review I show newspaper articles from around the world!

  8. Congrats on your project and the media attention!

    Finding the location of your Waldo was actually super easy… it doesn’t help that there’s a certain identifiable ___________ in your current aerial shot that dramatically narrows down the search, though.

  9. Fantastic idea!
    I saw your Waldo …or Wally(lol) at Globo International TV.
    Hugs from Japan!
