»Marjorie Leggitt DescriptionMixed media editorial art created for the cover of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science Museum Quarterly magazine to illustrate an article on the sudden extinction of dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Although whimsical, the full time-lapse illustration (of which this is only half) represents a 15 million year span from before, during, and after the K-T boundary. Each animal, plant and reptile represents a particular individual or group of fauna and flora.
