For a long time I had this idea floating around my brain of using a puzzle overlay on some of my graphics.
So I posted on the microsoft.public.imagecomposer.discussion newsgroup for a puzzle overlay. I received a puzzle overlay and a puzzle font.
My daughter and I were trying to create a puzzle with the font, and we succeeded, but it was quite difficult. Then one thing led to another and the puzzle pieces started to look like people to me and this creation was born.
