Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Star Wars Sugar Skull
While Día de los Muertos might still be a month away, it can’t be too early to break out this stunning work from John Karpinsky. Visually captivating in color, design and use of pop culture icons, these Star Wars sugar skulls are beautiful to behold. Star Wars maybe the most popular of all pop culture movies and is a happy childhood memory for all of us up and coming middle age fans.
I can only imagine the increase of such Star Wars inspired artwork in the years to come as artists grow up and wish to show their love for a galaxy far away and all of the wonderful characters who live within.
From the artist: Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday celebrating the dead. Sugar skulls are often created in the image of the dead, inviting them to enjoy a celebration and feast.
Star Wars was a large part of my childhood, which sadly passed long ago. This is my tribute to characters of my youth, an invitation to the celebration of that cultural phenomenon that shaped my life so long ago.
