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.
