Do you know what day it is? The day after Halloween? Yes, that too… but it’s also Dias de los muartos! AAAAARRRRRIBA!
Día de los Muertos (english: Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray and remember friends and family members who have died. No worries, the theme for this celebration is not really what you call depressing.. In the typical Halloween festivities, death is something to be feared. But in día de los muertos, death — or at least the memories of those who have died — is something to be celebrated. Symbolised by beautifully decorated skulls, it is quite hard to feel depressed. And that’s exactly what I felt when I was walking in to my brothers office today! I found this super amazing skeleton sketch on his desk inspired by Dia de los Muretos.. I love it how you see a story once you look more into the drawing.. The skull holding his empty bottle of luck, the bloody sharp razor blades and the sum of 13 on the dice; are still drawn in a way it will make you smile! Thumbs up; Pretty awesome ACE!!
