Día De Los Muertos

I think by far some of the coolest folk art is for Day of the Dead.

Day of the Dead is such an interesting art subject because its cultural influence. A one day festival honoring the deceased. It's not spooky, its family oriented.

  1. This is a cool image. I'm glad that you have tapped into the patterning and stylizing of the Mexican, Central and South American arts.
