Finally resolved my outcome for the Sam project. Any suggestions for improvements would be much appreciated!

I've been working in photoshop trying to get the images for my Sam double page spread sorted, my line to illustrate being "Suddenly... Sam jumped out of bed". The first consists of a close up of my character Sam the chameleon's face, his expression surprised as if he's just been startled. The second shows Sam leaping out of a crocodiles mouth (where he'd made his bed for the night). I wanted to continue to experiment with pattern in this piece and so have been looking closely at the work of print maker Angie Lewin who creates wood cuts based around the natural environment, paying specific attention to plants and flowers. This is something I've tried to incorporate into my own piece; the second of the two pages will include my own pattern of leaves and jungle flowers. Here's what I've produced for the first page so far... I'm still not sure whether Sam looks surprised enough...

I've been having real problems with this outcome but for now, have decided to stick with the jigsaw puzzle outcome. I've redrawn the though jigsaw (so it actually looks like a jigsaw) which is an improvement...
I've reworked my initial idea for this editorial, now focussing on the idea of disassembly. This is my plan for my final outcome and I'm really pleased with it! I had a few problems decided how best to portray that the character is being dissembled rather than assembled. I'm still unsure whether the image alone resolves this, however, when placed in the context of the article hopefully it will become clear.
