i am participating on an online contest hosted by Creative Allies to create a t-shirt design inspired the Mexican celebration 'Day of the Dead' (Dias de los Muertos). I always found this tradition fascinating, seeing death and the dead not with fear but as 'friends' with whom you can hang out with and enjoy yourself (even just once a year) is a very οptimistic view in my opinion.
it is also very close to my illustration style, and a nice 'excuse' to try a little more colouring than usual. hope you enjoy both versions (as always, i prefer the bw more).
feel free to write a comment on the site,vote and share if you like it.
the contest is still on until 30th of August for anyone who is interested to participate!
