Mexican Skull

Raschid Alonso, from Mexico City, is a freelance illustrator and an advertising designer. He creates many skulls, but this one is his favorite. This piece speaks to the culture of Mexico, and it's ancestral history. I'm fascinated by Aztec and Mayan artwork, since like many artists, their work had deeper meanings. The have a gruesome and colorful history. One that we might never fully understand, but can pay homage to through artwork and positive celebrations.
