When I thought of creating the sugar skull inspired t-shirt designs, at first I was only thinking of creating a cool skull artwork. I don't draw skulls much often at all. In fact, I think the last skull artwork I created before this drawing was probably 5-8 years ago even before this one from 2016.
As a child I was somewhat scared of skulls. I just thought it was creepy and over the years my perception of skulls changed. Growing up I realized the many symbolism behind it and also came to a balanced understanding that skulls are nothing to be afraid of. Every human being living and alive have a skull and we are complex beings in every way.
Although the Day of The Dead "Día de los Muertos" is celebrated a day after Halloween the Mexican holiday has a much deeper meaning. It is nothing like Halloween in the sense to scare people or to be a horrific inspired event. This Mexican holiday is purely to celebrate and honor the dearly departed for of color, music, and creativity.
This red and yellow skull t-shirt was the first color combination I tried and from there I experimented with a few other color schemes. As you continue on down the page you will also see some colors combined with gold.
Majority of the color combinations used are friendly, the red and black one is probably the darkest tone and feel. To be honest I believe red and red have such a strong emotion behind the colors alone. Combining this with a skull only accents that feeling/art direction.
Whether your favorite color is yellow, purple, pink or blue there are a wide variety of the designs to shop from in the store. If you found a design you love, show some support by going to the store to get the shirt that you want.
Passion For Art
Every day I create a sketch or a drawing to express an idea that I have in mind. I try not to let any ideas sit for too long and do my best to act on them by either creating for drawings or at least small sketches.
I’ve been drawing since I was four years old and 20+ years later I am still doing a lot of drawing. The influences for the artwork that I create are Jean Michel Basquiat, Pablo Picasso, Hokusai Katsushika and Jackson Pollock.

A SHARE goes a long way. Thank you in advance.
Oh, don't forget to comment below on which shirt design is your favorite from these ones. I would love to know and would create more Day of The Dead themed artworks around that color palette.
I am always pushing the boundaries of my own imagination whenever I create an artwork. Whether it is a digital painting, traditional painting, or pen and ink drawing, I challenge myself with each creation.Follow me on Instagram @kenallouis to view stories and my most recent works in process and the ones I don't share on the website.
