Sugar Skull Drawing

Lisa Hawson, from Surrey in the UK, created this Dia de los Muertos inspired skull.

Dia de los Muertos is only a few more weeks away. This festive drawing reminds me of the sweet decorative sugar skulls made for the two day celebration. Though the festival's roots are in Mexico, many people in other countries celebrate it as well. I'm not of Mexican decent, but there is something about honoring my ancestors and heritage that is alluring. I plan on celebrating with my family, and perhaps drawing a few skulls myself. For more of Lisa's work, check out her blog and website.
