I had the opportunity of participating in the Young Blood Gallery's Day of the Dead Exhibition in Atlanta, GA. This is my second year being involved in the show, and it's so much fun! I was sent a wooden coffin with the freedom to create anything for the interior.
This year I made a Ghost, a tribute to a friend who died this summer. Around the side walls of the coffin there are 10 small illustrations that tell a story of the life of the Ghost, from birth to death. The stomach of the Ghost has a window into his internal haunting, the love that he left behind.
Here is the "Life Story," illustrations that appear along the walls of the coffin:
If you are in the Atlanta area, please join me for the FINAL Day of the Dead exhibit hosted by Young Blood Gallery and Tweet Design.
