The “Día de los Muertos” Series

"Paint and Butterflies"



"Lace & Gold"


"After participating in Second Skin contest, I wanted to develop my idea for the " sugar skull ".The challenge was to create a variety of different interpretations of
this iconic image for the mexican holiday Día de los Muertos .
Paper was the only material that I used and this gave me the chance to explore
the different characteristics and possibilities of the material .
The final result was a unique combination of different details & styles .”
Fantasy is silver and scarlet, indigo and azure, obsidian veined with gold and lapis lazuli. Reality is plywood and plastic, done up in mud brown and olive drab. Fantasy tastes of habaneros and honey, cinnamon and cloves, rare red meat and wines as sweet as summer. Reality is beans and tofu, and ashes at the end. Reality is the strip malls of Burbank, the smokestacks of Cleveland, a parking garage in Newark. Fantasy is the towers of Minas Tirith, the ancient stones of Gormenghast, the halls of Camelot. Fantasy flies on the wings of Icarus, reality on Southwest Airlines. Why do our dreams become so much smaller when they finally come true?

We read fantasy to find the colors again, I think. To taste strong spices and hear the songs the sirens sang. There is something old and true in fantasy that speaks to something deep within us, to the child who dreamt that one day he would hunt the forests of the night, and feast beneath the hollow hills, and find a love to last forever somewhere south of Oz and north of Shangri-La.

They can keep their heaven. When I die, I’d sooner go to Middle-Earth.

I’m looking forward to eating some of Jared’s sheperd’s pie today.

I like this album. Has some nontraditional versions of holiday songs.
