Drawing Sugar Skulls

It may be a bit early, but lately I have been drawing lots of girls decked out in calavera face paint for los Días de los Muertos. I recently got a pack of black Faber-Castell artist pens and I love them! It's actually therapeutic sketching out the curvy shapes of flowers and flowing hair.

For the past few days, I've been re-watching the complete series of Daria, so I did sugar skull versions of Daria and Jane for my friend and fellow Daria-lover Liezl on some nice, thick watercolor paper and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Speaking of sugar skulls, the lovely Mary Rebecca is hosting a Halloween giveaway which includes my Muertos Girl print & Cats in Costumes zine, and lots of other super-duper prizes. Take a look at the post for all of the giveaway details. I will also be doing a guest post at Mary's blog later this month.
