I finished this a while ago, and was holding off posting it until I finished a similar illustration of Danny Trejo, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet, so I figured I may as well get this scanned.
I used the gypsy skull girl tattoo design on the side of Luz’s taco truck in the movie as inspiration for the portrait. I think this may be what started my recent calavera obsession.
Done in watercolor, pen & ink, and a bit of gouache.
Prints available, as usual.
