Work and Progress

Sketches for Day of the Dead Project 2013

I had the opportunity to work on a Poster for the Day of the Dead Celebration in Pasadena this Fall, in association with Blue Milagro and the City of Pasadena.  I was contacted in August and got started sketching right away. Here are some concept drawings I proposed early on.

This a refined version of the image that was chosen on the poster.

I really wanted to develop this for the poster. I was thinking of Fritz Lang and German expressionism. But it was too creepy for kids I think.

“Calaca Song” is the concept I developed from several rough sketches and was intended to be the final image to be on poster but was later switched out. I really dig this image and it was inspired by songstress Lila Downs.

Quick rough.

Some still -life options.

Skull Sketches

Quick ruffs.

I  made about, seven different rough sugar skull designs one of which was chosen for the final poster.

Wrestler peel back

Here is a woodcut concept that again was too heavy for kids but nonetheless a good exhibition piece for me.

Blocks Inspired

These are drawings I do directly on the block. Images were inspired by this event.
