Last year I came across this haunting image by Irene Garcia, but there was no image credit. I was happy to find it again and peruse her other work.

It’s a skeleton-laden portfolio, heavily inspired by dia de los muertos (works for me!)

I think this is my favorite pencil sketch.

David Lozeau

I’ve been digging some of Davif Lozeau’s skeleton art lately (pun intended?).

Perhaps I’m just a sucker for skeleton art, but I think these characters are pretty fun.

From the website: David Lozeau has a quirky, character-driven painting style that blends Day of the Dead iconography, 1950s cartoon cell animation, traditional tattoo imagery, and pure Southern California Lowbrow, revealing his unique perspective on life, death, and all the gory stuff in between.
