prehistoric puzzle


I recently did this 42 piece dinosaur puzzle for Mudpuppy. I had a blast doing this one-I don't know when it will be available but I can't wait to get one, although I probably won't be able to put it together.

Love this! It's a privilege to have my links next to yours on illo friday.. Do you do some of this in illustrator and then apply your textures in photoshop? It looks awsome

Tracy said...

This looks amazing! I may have to search for it when released and get it for my Kindergarten classroom. Amazing textures, too. Wonder how big the puzzle will be? That will be so cool to put it together then see your artwork! (You can do it! "I think I can, I think I can, etc.") :)
