Jonathan Koshi, a 34 year old Mission District San Francisco web designer, has created a series of prints based on the Calaveras de Azucar associated with the Mexican Day of the Dead festivities. Drawing from pop-culture references from his childhood, and inspired by Gothic art and Swiss surrealist H.R. Giger, his art has already sold out, but thanks to the beauty of the internet, you can still view them here or by checking out his Flickr page at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/koshi/ .

Nothing about Kermit screams Day of the Dead to me, but this is an amazing piece nonetheless.
Pac-Man eating ghosts for Day of the Dead – there’s symbolism in there somewhere.
