Michael Moore - "Despite the government's best efforts to ban it, this puzzle proves the need for synthetic marijuana. You would have to be so stoned to want to tackle this, at which point it could make for a very interesting evening. Or month.
Peaches - "This is an arty nightmare. I'm a minimalist with some things, but not with a puzzle. I think I need to sit down with a cold coffee and the Lil Bub album for the next 10 hours and try to figure this out."

Bryce Wilner's Gradient Puzzle was featured in Western Living Magazine in a post tiled, "Ombre Puzzle for Design Lovers (and a long weekend)" by Anicka Quin.
"At our annual retreat to the cabin in Powell River last year, a puzzle became a week-long obsession for more than a few people in our group. I’d never really got the puzzle thing before then—what, you make a picture?—but there’s something meditative (and obsessive) about slowly picking through pieces and getting that satisfying click when it works. This new Gradient puzzle from Areaware isn’t exactly Amish children picking pumpkins (as the puzzle from the cabin turned out to be), but I suspect just as satisfying—there’s no precise point where one colour becomes another. And ombre as a trend shows no sign of slowing down—so puzzle this one for a while."
