[ENG]
Dia de Muertos (Day of Death) is one of the most famous festivities in Mexico, and there's some iconical elements like La Catrina and the wonderful artwork from José Guadalupe Posada that remind that and spread the richness of that celebration. There are also the Calaveritas de dulce, which are skulls pieces made of sugar that are decorated with colors lines and contain the names of the beloved people in the altar that we called La Ofrenda.
So, I just made this personal illustration based on that, in a more detailed and colorful look, honoring the fantastic tradition of decorating the Calaveritas de dulce in my own style, reminding my beloved death people.
 
[ESP]
El Día de Muertos es una de las mas famossas festividades en México alrededor del mundo, y hay en ello íconos muy representativos como La Catrina y el increíble trabajo del grabador José Guadalúpe Posada que han servido para ampliar la riqueza gráfica de ésas celebraciones. También están las famosas calaveritas de dulce, que son piezas hechas de azúcar y decoradas con líneas de colores vivos y en la frente llevan los nombres de los seres queridos en la ofrenda que se coloca en el altar y en las tumbas del cementerio.
Basado en éstas referencias, hice ésta ilustración para un proyecto personal, con un toque mucho mas detallaso, honrando la increíble tradición de decorar las calaveritas de dulce en un estilo propio que me recuerda a los seres queridos que hoy ya no están conmigo.
