Sugar Skulls

Well, as many of my Facebook friends know (as they have bombarded all week with this), I've created a new design for the Crypt of Doom, and I must say, it's doing rather well.

Like most adorably macabre artists, I have quite a sweet spot for Sugar Skulls, but I've been hesitant to draw any.  I think part of it is that I wanted to really try to make my Sugar Skulls look like the actual thing and not one inspired by tattoo art.  I love the bold colors and the fun patterns.

Anywho, so far I've used the one design to create the typical Cell Phone Charm, a pair of earrings, and for the first time, a hair clip/bobby pin.

I think I'll probably do one or two more Sugar Skulls (for variety) and then move on to other adorably macabre subject matter. . . like my dear old friend the Voodoo Doll.

This week I'm going to be attempting to finish a long over due painting for a former coworker.  Which I will probably post next week once complete.
