Nonogram puzzles are known by a wide variety of names: Picross, Paint-By-Number, Logic Art, and many more. Solving this type of puzzle is interesting because rather than the final answer being an arbitrary grid of numbers or symbols, the end result is a pixelated image. Half the fun is figuring out what you’re drawing as you solve.

In a nonogram, each cell of the grid will either be left blank or filled in. To solve, consider the numbers at the boundaries. Each number represents a continuous block of filled-in squares, ordered top-to-bottom or left-to-right.
