Dia De Los Muertos Collection: Piece 1-Sugar Skulls.

Finally! The first piece for my "Dia De Los Muertos" Halloween collection.
Dunno anything about the holiday? Educate yourself here
Day of the Dead

I wanted to do this collection to experiment with my heritage and culture. My family celebrates this holiday, sometimes I go to Mexico for it with relatives that live there but lately I just celebrate it at home. Its a lot of fun! And it feels like I get two Halloweens each year. I just love the fall.

Each piece will be inspired by the holiday and I'll do them digitally and traditionally. I really want to experiment. Hopefully, I can get in 6 pieces by the end of the month...or maybe more if Im lucky.

A day of the dead without sugar skulls is like a Charms Blow Pop without the bubble gum inside. It's a must-have.
So yummy yummy!
