Celebrate life (and death) with Amigos de los Muertos, a contemporary collection of Day of the Dead art. New takes on classic images including sugar skulls, dancing skeletons, dead musicians, the grim reaper, Evel Knievel skeletons, and more—all rendered in the crisp, detailed linework. The artists of Amigos de los Muertos are Jeral Tidwell, Angryblue, Roberto Jaras Lira, and David Lozeau. These four artists draw from the Dia de los Muertos tradition of Posada, blending in their own styles, influenced by tattoo art, gig posters, kustom kulture and skateboarding. Amigos de los Muertos is beautifully designed and printed, with a faux leather debossed cover, gold foil stamping, purple ribbon, and gilded edges.
Painted over the course of 50 hours and compressed down to just under 4 minutes, this video shows the layering process and building up of color, along with extensive black line work it took to complete the piece. Done with 1 Shot sign painter's enamel and acrylic on clayboard.
