Introducing the Isometric Nonogram!

α) "Boar"ing Definition [oink]

enter image description here Column: Blue Part + Green Cell
Row: Yellow Part + Green Cell
Adjacent/ Continuous cells: Purple Cell + any of the Orange Cells

β) Clues

enter image description here

  • All clues are provided.
  • Only one colour, red is needed for this nonogram.
  • All clues are either from the left to the right or from the top to the bottom
  • Clues along the blue edges are column clues, and those along the scarlet edges are row clues

I apologise for messiness of the clues, so here is how you read them: Each clue is denoted by one colour. It is, I believe and I hope, not hard to interpret.

γ) The Puzzle

ω) Postscript

Thanks for all your enthusiastic participation. I must apologise for forgetting to note beforehand that the objective of this nonogram, and many of my others, is to interpret the nonogram and get a message. Sorry!

Have fun!

  • $\begingroup$ At the left corner, I think there's a conflict; the leftmost row clue is "1 1 1 2 1 4", however there are two adjacent column clues, "1" and "3", where each one fills the column it's on. This results in the middle row having at least 2 red tiles at the start, while it's only supposed to have 1. $\endgroup$

I was trying to post this 5 minutes before the other answer, but got snookered by camp wifi

the puzzle appears to read "RUBIO"

  • $\begingroup$ it was a pity that you were sniped due the sad wifi... but still i have to give u_ndefined the check due to the timestamp. were you the sniper against the unfortunate answerer, i would still have given you the check. upvoted, keep up your great work, and happy puzzling! $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 19, 2019 at 15:51
  • $\begingroup$ but they did not solve it fully, they ignored the hidden message $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 19, 2019 at 16:54

Here is the solution to the puzzle (note the correction in "3,1,2,5" to "3,1,2,1,4", by comment here):


  • $\begingroup$ well done, check here! $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 19, 2019 at 15:51
  • $\begingroup$ @OmegaKrypton I have upvoted u_ndefined for solving the nonogram as presented and downvoted your question for assuming an "easter egg" is somehow more important than the puzzle was. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ u_ndefined, i am so sorry to remove your check, but then micsthepick reminded me that the aim is to find the meaning of the nonogram. sorry for not stating this explicitly. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 20, 2019 at 1:06
  • $\begingroup$ @DarkThunder thanks so much for your feedback. i appreciate this a lot! $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 20, 2019 at 1:06
