Illustration Friday- angels & devils

This week’s topic really had me. I was going to skip it until my husband gave me this idea. A good friend of ours is really into The Day of the Dead. Through him, my husband and I have come to appreciate it as well. So, this is what I came up with.

  1. I love this technique. And lends itself well when drawing bones. They look so happy, cheerful, full of cheer. It takes a marriage of ideas to get through an illustration fri, these days, doesn’t. Between fat, tattoo and angels and devils, I am beginning to wonder how the selection is made!

    I am fond of Day of the Dead paraphanalia. I used to work in an ethnic gift boutique in Connecticut, during college. We used to get all sorts of fun, funky, and creepy stuff in. I swear some of it was real bones, it was, it had to be, but of what….ooooh……BOO!

    Oh and your pitas look delicious. Looks like a fun thing to try.

    Very beautiful piece, Regina. The Latinos call it El Dia de Los Muertos. You’re probably the only one that used this idea. I really like your style.

    This has a really zany vibe! I guess it’s the ghostly party goers…it seems very incongruous. I alos love the cacti on either side of the picture…it all comes together to make a delightfully bizarre picture. I really like this a lot! I also love what you did for last weelk’s IMT – the gorgeous vineyard painting. It looks like a dream!

    I love the look of this and the concept is great. I considered skipping this one too, but I haven’t missed one in 2006, so I cranked out something I’m not at all happy with. Oh well, maybe next week’s topic will be more inspiring!

    I love DOTD stuff, and this lends itself perfectly.
    Well done indeed.
