The marriage between two iconic toys.

This was made for a silent auction.

From start to finish, I estimate that it took about 2-3 hours.
My favorite part was shading the squares on the rubik's cube. I am trying out ways to be experimental with representing different colors by using different patterns to shade. I think this was a pretty successful attempt, but I'd love to hear your opinions and suggestions!

EDIT (12-19-15): I updated the background and am now offering prints on etsy - woohoo! www.etsy.com/listing/261067973…
EDIT (1-17-20): I updated it once more - the print link still works!

Whoaaaa... awesome work! :wow:
I love how you came up with different patterns for each face of the cube. I also like the idea of using a puzzle-like device to depict another puzzle :love:

Congratulations on a well-deserved DD! :clap: :D :hug: :heart:
