aliens!







What's up everybody? I was lucky to get the opportunity to create this alien puzzle for Crocodile Creek a while back, and it's finally available. I had a lot of fun with this one. I sketched a ton of aliens, but eventually narrowed it down to these guys. The background was influenced by the old Roadrunner cartoons I grew up watching as a kid. I guess those countless hours spent glued to the TV watching Saturday morning cartoons have paid off after all.
Some of the alien characters left their planet to wind up on this cool rubber ball too. Check it out!
