Feliz Dia de los Muertos
The Day of the Dead is one of those holidays that seems to prove irresistible to illustrators. Vicky Newman just sent us this rather fine wooden badge to celebrate the November 1 festival...
From Telegramme's lovely skull prints, to Faye Dowling's recent Book of Skulls, the influence of Mexico's most famous festival is spread far and wide. Newman's skull badge is a beautifully etched piece of wood and, may we say, looks great on a lapel.
Wishing CR a happy Dia de los Muertos, Newman also says she is "a lover of ink work and under appreciated holidays." Thanks for combining both those things in this great piece of work, Vicky. More of her illustration work at vickynewman.com.
Nice skull line work!
I really like the illustration in the skull of the dragon/bird. The colours used are really mellow which is nice.
That etching is amazing, its all so detailed. I love the bird on the last image.
Cool way of 'doing Halloween'. Wearing it next to my poppy.
This is great to see. It's also fascinating that a lot of countries pay tribute to the dead in quite frank and open ways. Enjoy these little gems on CR!
