Muertos by oxboxer Muertos by oxboxer
Too late for Dia de los Muertos, but my excuse is that I had an apocalyptic death fever and was only capable of drinking tea and watching Jackie Chan movies. I think this is a pretty good excuse.

Marigolds are pretty great. I kind of miss being in Spanish immersion grade school because they had us celebrate all those crazy Mexican-Catholic holidays like Cinco de Mayo and el Dia. I just like how Mexicans do holidays. Cover everything in bright colors and party! Honor the dead by partying and flowers! Make everything beautiful!

I am getting married on Halloween day, this year (spur of the moment wedding... silly me!), and I would love to use your Muertos image for our wedding invitations and as our wedding inspiration. I am in absolute love with this Muertos piece... I am a Mexican Ballet Folklorico dancer, and your picture embraces who we (my BF and I) are and what we represent. Please let me know how I can get in touch with you to dicuss further. Your work is FABULOUS! Thanks!

I have to agree I love that Mexican style of celebrating the passed-away, instead of crying their hearts out. After all, we should remember people by our good memories of them, not because of their passing. :3
One day, I'm going to go to one of those Dia de los Muertos and see what it's like...

This picture is beautifully made; love the selection of colours and the line art. The blue against the rest of the warm tones is very nicely balanced. The two characters are also wonderfully poised, and I love the clean line art, coloration and decoration. Very elegant and pretty. X3
