Sugar, Sugar… Skull!

I’m SO excited to share these new pics with you!  Recently I had the honor of working again with the very talented Mark Wearsch of Wearsch Photography.  This is my second time painting up one of his models as a Sugar Skull, and he captured the work beautifully!  Sugar skulls have become one of my favorite things to paint… the intricate details make this style of art complex, but also stunning.  Take a look!

Painting a Model

Yesterday I painted my first collaboration with a photographer for a photo shoot.  It was alot of fun, and the photos turned out amazing!  Photographer Mark Wearsch had a fun vision and our model did a great job!  I can’t wait to do more fun shoots like this, and I really should hire Mark to follow me around to all of my gigs to get photos like this more often!

Sugar Skulls

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, s a Mexican holiday celebrated every year on November 1st and 2nd.  Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts.  Artisans have been making beautifully decorated sugar skulls for generations, and now the artform has turned into very popular face painting designs!

Happy Día de los Muertos!
